asked the Minister of Education "whether she is aware that the teachers employed by the Northumberland County Council have not yet been paid their increases on the Burnham scale due on 1st April this year; what is the reason for this delay; and when it is anticipated that these new rates will be paid.

The local education authority have, I presume, deferred payment of the new Burnham scales pending the issue of the Committees' full Reports containing their detailed recommendations for the application of the scales. These Reports were presented to me on 31st August and have now been approved. Copies will, I hope, be despatched to local education authorities to-morrow and the authorities will then be in a position to proceed to make the necessary adjustments which, of course, will be retrospective.
