Alert me about debates like this

Mr. David Adams:

(forasked the President of the Board of Education on what grounds he has given approval to the Essex Education Committee's scheme by which young persons of 16 to 17 years of age, acting temporarily as teachers, will be paid £92 if male but only £87 if female?

The approval of the proposal to which the hon. Member refers was given as the result of a misunderstanding in my Department and has now been withdrawn.

Mr. Adams:

Are we to understand from that that there is to be equality of payment between the sexes now?
