HC Deb 23 July 1973 vol 860 cc1154-5
54. Mr. Cordle

asked the Attorney-General whether he will review the law relating to disciplinary proceedings held by professional associations, unions, local education committees and kindred bodies.

The Attorney-General

In my view, a general review over so wide a field is inappropriate. If my hon. Friend likes to tell me of any point which he has in mind, I will gladly consider it.

Mr. Cordle

In the light of the problems encountered by the National Union of Teachers at present and by the Teesside education authorities in January last, will my right hon. and learned Friend consider publishing a simpler booklet to which they could refer on disciplinary matters?

The Attorney-General

The matters my hon. Friend has in mind are not for me, but I will see that what he has said is passed to my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Education and Science.
