HC Deb 22 January 1985 vol 71 cc374-5W
17. Mr. Fatchett

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science when he next expects to discuss pay and conditions with the unions representing lecturers in further education; and if he will make a statement.

Sir Keith Joseph

I have discussions with the main unions representing teachers from time to time. However, since the pay of further education lecturers is a matter for the Burnham further education committee, and conditions of service for the national joint council for teachers in further education, these are not normally on the agenda for such discussions. I have no immediate plans for a meeting with the associations representing further education teachers.
