HC Deb 21 March 1963 vol 674 cc94-5W
87. Mr. Wade

asked the Minister of Education what changes he is proposing to make in the Burnham Committee negotiating machinery in view of his recent rejection of its report on teachers' salary increases.

Sir E. Boyle

As I have told the Burnham Committee, I intend as soon as is practicable to open discussions with the appropriate bodies to review the present arrangements for negotiating teachers' salaries. My own starting point will be that each of the responsible parties in the education service, including the Minister, should be assured of an appropriate place in any revised machinery and procedures.
