(c) Representation made by Institute to Auckland Education Board.

In August, 1891, a motion was tabled by a member of the Auckland Education Board, "That in future no teacher in the Board's service shall be paid a salary exceeding £300." (The teachers in Auckland district, by the way, have no house allowance granted to them.)
