HC Deb 29 July 1975 vol 896 cc463-4W
Mr. Freud

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether, in view of possible redundancies in polytechnics, the Crombie Code outlined in the Colleges of Education (Compensation) Regulations 1975 will be applicable to polytechnic lecturers.

Mr. Mulley

Compensation under the Crombie Code is applied only where there is statutory intervention with established expectations of employment.

The Colleges of Education (Compensation) Regulations 1975 will apply to staff in teacher training institutions who lose their posts or suffer loss as a result of a direction given under the Further Education Regulations 1975.

The regulations will apply only to those polytechnic teachers who are employed in polytechnics which immediately before 1st August 1975, the date the regulations come into force, were conducted as training establishments within the meaning of the Training of Teachers Regulations 1967.
