§ Mr. Pavitt
asked the Prime Minister if he will now exempt London teachers from the operation of paragraph 113 of the Price and Pay Code in order to permit free negotiations on the London allowance as indicated by the arbitration tribunal in 1972, in view of the present closure of schools in Willesden and elsewhere.
§ Mrs. Thatcher
I have been asked to reply.
My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Employment is meeting tomorrow with representatives of the National Union of Teachers to receive their views on this question as part of the process of consultation on the Price and Pay Code.
