§ Mr. Butler
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether he is yet in a position to make a statement about the pay of home tutors in Cheshire.
§ Mrs. Rumbold
I understand from the Cheshire local education authority that it will be reinstating the rate of pay applicable before 1 October 1987 for those home tutors who had a contract with the authority on that date, for the duration of those contracts. I have written to my hon. Friend on this matter.
