§ 76. Lieut.-Commander TUFNELL
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Education whether he can now state what progress has been made with the negotiations with the teachers' organisations as to the effect of the recent salary cuts upon pensions; and whether he has yet been able to make a proposal that has proved satisfactory to these organisations?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the BOARD of EDUCATION (Mr. Ramsbotham)
I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer given on the 1st November to the hon. Member for Walls-end (Miss Ward) a copy of which I am sending him.
§ Lieut.-Commander TUFNELL
In view of the answer which the Minister gave on that occasion, would he acknowledge the claim of these teachers who number 28,000, and many of whom are quite willing to pay their contribution? Would he take steps to remove a justifiable grievance?
