To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what consultations she will have on the proposed new contract for teachers. [68522]

Mr. Miliband

Consultation on the recommendations in the School Teachers' Review Body's report on teacher work loads came to an end on 3 July. The Department's consultation letter of 8 May said that my right. hon. Friend would consult again on practical measures as appropriate in the light of this initial consultation. For the time being the Department is evaluating the initial consultation responses. Further consultation is likely to take place in the early autumn.
