HC Deb 19 July 1984 vol 64 c320W
Mr. Amess

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what progress has been made in the negotiations with the teaching unions towards a new agreement on salary and conditions.

Sir Keith Joseph

I understand that discussions in the Burnham joint working party on the teachers' pay structure, duties and responsibilities and conditions of service were adjourned on 13 July to allow the management side time to consider a number of points made by the teachers' representatives. No date has been set for a further meeting.
