Let me set out the current position of the respective parties. The teachers believe they have a grievance which they want to be resolved only by an independent pay review. My right hon.

On the contrary, he made the reasonable and constructive suggestion that the Scottish joint negotiating committee for teaching staff in school education should itself carry out a review of pay and conditions of service together.
