HC Deb 22 January 1985 vol 71 c377W
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.
