HC Deb 10 November 1966 vol 735 c1521
19. Mr. Joseph Kevin McNamara

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what representations he has received concerning the effect of the Government's economic policy on the payment of overtime to lecturers in institutes of further education; and what reply he has sent.

Mr. Crosland

I cannot trace any.

Mr. McNamara

Is not my right hon. Friend aware that, despite the recent circular, considerable concern is felt by teachers in further education because the Government's present policy is being used as an excuse for increasing the work load, and this is leading to some lack of cooperation in other plans, for example, regarding education in industry?

Mr. Crosland

All I can say is that after my hon. Friend put his Question down we searched our files and could find no representations on this subject. If he would care to bring to our attention any goings-on which he thinks are wrong or scandalous, we shall gladly give them attention.
