§ Mr. Biffen
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if the Honey-man arbitral report on teachers' pay was considered in the light of the Government's prices and incomes policy, particularly in respect of the criteria of the lower-paid workers and increases in productivity; and if he will circulate in the OFFICIAL REPORT what proposals were made and accepted to increase the productivity of the teaching profession.
§ Mr. Goronwy Roberts
The answer to the first part of the Question is "Yes". My right hon. Friend has placed in the Library a copy of the arbitrators' report which summarised the arguments put to them relating to the Government's prices and incomes policy.
