HC Deb 22 June 1971 vol 819 c260W
Mr. Lomas

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if she will ensure that the views of teachers' unions, other than the National Union of Teachers, will be taken into account by the arbitrators on teachers' pay.

Mrs. Thatcher

The arrangements for arbitration made under Section 3 of the Remuneration of Teachers Act, 1965, provide that evidence, whether written or oral, shall be given, in such form as the arbitral body may require, on behalf of the teachers' panel as a whole and of the management panel as a whole respectively.
