HC Deb 19 January 1982 vol 16 c121W
26. Mr. Butcher

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will seek to change teachers' salary structures to permit an element of remuneration in recognition of good classroom performance.

Dr. Boyson

My right hon. Friend does not have the power to change schoolteachers' salary structures. That is a matter for the Burnham primary and secondary committee. A working party of that committee is studying a number of proposals including the extent to which the salary structure might reward good teaching.
