asked the Minister of Education whether he is aware that the recently published Burnham Award provides an increment in the salary of a teacher who has achieved Honours in his First Degree, but makes no such concession in the case of graduates who have taken a Higher Degree, representing, notably in the case of London University, a considerable additional period of study with corresponding expense to the graduate; and whether he will remove this inequality.
