HC Deb 24 June 1985 vol 81 c299W
Mr. Hicks

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what representations he has received advocating that teacher and police salaries should be transferred from being the responsibility of local government to being that of central Government.

Mr. Kenneth Baker

My right hon. Friend has received no recent formal representations, but the suggestion that payment of teachers' salaries should become a central Government responsibility has often been made.
