§ Mr. Pardoe
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science it he will make a statement on the agreement between the teachers' organisations and local authorities concerning the rates of pay for extraneous duties of teachers in residential special schools.
§ Mr. Edward Short
A working party of representatives of the local authorities and teachers' associations has recommended uniform principles for assessing payment for additional duties and charges for accommodation, etc. for teaching staff in residential special schools, to be given effect from 1st October, 1968. The report is being considered by the associations, but has not yet been approved by all of them. The Government consider that the proposals are consistent with prices and incomes policy.
