HC Deb 06 November 1980 vol 991 c638W
4. Mr. Gwilym Roberts

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if, in view the Government's ratification of the teachers' pay increase without making additional resources available to education authorities, he will now take steps to remove the financial responsibility for some sections of the educational service from the ratepayers.

Mr. Biffen

There were no special features in this year's pay settlement for teachers which would justify the change of responsibility between central and local government which the hon. Member suggests.
