§ Mr. Kenneth Baker
The Government hope to introduce new permanent machinery in time for the 1990 settlement.
§ Mr. Baker
I have set out the Government's proposals for a teachers' negotiating group and I have met the unions and the TUC. I expect to meet them again after Easter to 160 conduct further discussions. A wide range of views has so far been expressed and it may be difficult to reach agreement and unanimity on the matter.
