HC Deb 17 March 1986 vol 94 cc4-5W
Sir Geoffrey Finsberg

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science when he will next review the representation on the teachers' panel of the Burnham primary and secondary committee.

Sir Keith Joseph

I do not think that it would be appropriate to consider holding such a review until the independent panel recently appointed by ACAS to assist management and teachers in negotiations on various matters, including procedures for negotiation, has completed its work. In the meantime I will continue to keep changes in membership of the teacher unions under careful observation.
