§ 26. Sir William van Straubenzee
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what proposals he has for restarting the salary structure talks in relation to the teaching profession.
§ Sir Keith Joseph
The salary structure talks took place under the auspices of the Burnham primary and secondary committee and they can resume only with the agreement of a majority on both sides of the committee. There seems little prospect of such agreement in the immediate future, and I am therefore considering what other possibilities are open to me to pursue my objectives for better teacher management and quality.
