asked the Minister of Education what protests have been received against the Burnham Scale of salaries for graduate teachers from university committees, including the committee of vice-chancellors; what action is being taken in response to these protests; and whether she can make any statement regarding the effect of the publication of these scales upon the entry of graduate teachers to the national schools.

A communication was addressed to my predecessor in office in January of this year conveying the views of the Committee of Vice-Chancellors and Principals of University Colleges on the Burnham Committee's proposals. Since then, as the hon. Member will be aware, the Burnham Scales of salaries have been approved. I am not in a position to make any statement at this date on the point raised in the last part of the Question.
