HC Deb 14 March 1978 vol 946 c134W
57. Mr. Pavitt

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if she will approve a pay settlement for teachers within the 10 per cent, guidelines, but with a productivity addition of 2½ per cent, on criteria agreed by the employing authorities and the teachers' negotiating bodies.

Mr. Oakes

It is open to negotiators to consider any basis for a pay settlement that they believe to be relevant to their circumstances and consistent with the Government's pay policy.
