HC Deb 04 May 2000 vol 349 cc187-8W
26. Mr. Mackinlay

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment if he will make a statement on consultation with teachers' representative organisations about changes in their pay arrangements. [119650]

Ms Estelle Morris

Since the publication of the Green Paper, Teachers: meeting the challenge of change (Cm 4164), in December 1998, we have consulted extensively with teacher representatives about the proposed changes to teachers' pay structure. On 2 May, we published a draft of the School Teachers' Pay and Conditions Document 2000 for consultation with statutory consultees including teacher unions.
