There is no question of the withdrawal by the Board of a recognition previously granted. The Board have not until recently had occasion to consider whether they could recognise for the calculation of grant additional expenditure of local education authorities involved in treating service with the forces of the Crown during the War as teaching service for purposes of increments on the Burnham Scales. The Board's decision was explained in Circulars 1227 and 1244, and became operative from the date of the introduction of the standard scales. I am unable to give the number of men teachers whose War service has been treated as teaching service under those Circulars.
