HC Deb 19 March 1985 vol 75 cc472-3W
34. Mr. Litherland

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what progress has been made in the talks on a new salary structure for further education college lecturers.

Sir Keith Joseph

Expressions of willingness to review pay and related matters were exchanged last November and repeated in February. Those were necessarily in general terms. I am not aware that matters have progressed beyond that first stage to the detailed examination of specific proposals.
