§ 13. Mr. Alan Howarth
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will make a statement on his plans to replace the Burnham negotiating machinery.
§ Mr. Kenneth Baker
The Bill which I introduced on 28 November makes provision for the repeal of the Remuneration of Teachers Act 1965, and will thereby scrap the Burnham committee. The employers and unions are agreed that Burnham must go.
