§ The Joint Under-Secretary of State for Scotland (Mr. Henderson Stewart)
I am sending the hon. Member a copy of a letter about proposed changes in the Scottish Teachers' Superannuation Scheme, which was sent last July to the associations of local authorities and teachers in Scotland.
§ Mr. Stewart
As no doubt the hon. Member knows, we are discussing this matter with the two associations. We have already discussed it with the E.I.S. We are looking forward to hearing from the local authority associations. The difficulty of the problem is fully understood.
§ Mr. Rankin
Can the Minister tell us what has been the reaction of the E.I.S. to the letter he sent them?
