HC Deb 10 June 1971 vol 818 cc1214-5
13. Mr. Spearing

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if she will publish the evidence in her possession supporting the proposals for a revised structure for teachers' pay.

Mrs. Thatcher

I am sending the hon. Member a copy of an official statement by the management panel of the Burnham Primary and Secondary Committee giving details of the panel's proposals for a revised pay structure.

Mr. Spearing

While I am grateful for that answer, I think that the right hon. Lady will agree that it does not answer quite what was asked. I asked whether she would publish any evidence adduced to support the proposals the panel was making. Will she provide me with that evidence?

Mrs. Thatcher

I have no authority to speak for the management panel.
