§ 12. Mr. Barry Porter
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science what representations he has received concerning recognition of the Professional Association of Teachers; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mrs. Rumbold
The Professional Association of Teachers has represented to my right hon. Friend that some local education authorities still do not recognise the association. The Government recognise the PAT as one of the six schoolteacher unions with which it deals.
