HC Deb 11 July 2002 vol 388 c1177W
Mr. Jim Cunningham

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what measures she is taking to improve morale among teachers. [68521]

Mr. Miliband

Freeing teachers to concentrate on the core of their job and improving the status of the teaching profession more generally are central to our school work force reform agenda. The package of recommendations on work load made in a recent report by the School Teachers' Review Body reflects many of the issues raised by teachers themselves. A consultation on the principles contained in the report concluded on 3 July. The Government will issue a formal response to the report later this year.
