§ Mr. David Watkins
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he intends to honour the level of tie Clegg recommendations on notional salary figures in respect of teachers' pensions.
§ Dr. Boyson
My right hon. and learned Friend has already notified the teachers' associations and other interests that the salary scales agreed in the Burnham committees as appropriate for 1979–80 will be applied as notional salaries for pension purposes. Existing pensioners affected by this decision are being informed.
