Orders of the Day — School Teachers' Pay and Conditions Bill (27 Nov 1990)

Mr James Pawsey: ...too bureaucratic. We took on board the points made, and we have eased the testing requirements. That is an example of how we listen. The Bill avoids the trap of creating son of Burnham or Burnham mark 2. It does not restore the old discredited machinery which did so much to cause dissent and divide the profession. The Bill provides for negotiations between employers and teachers under an...

Teachers' Pay (23 Jul 1990)

Mr James Pawsey: Is my right hon. Friend aware that his refusal to introduce a Son of Burnham or Burnham mark 2 will be widely welcomed? Is he further aware that his proposals, which will allow local education authorities and grant-maintained schools to opt out of the national pay machinery, will be welcomed by schools, teachers, governors and parents and will do a great deal to answer problems of teacher...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Teachers' Pay (27 Feb 1990)

Mr James Pawsey: Does my right hon. Friend agree that we do not want son of Burnham, or Burnham mark II, or any of that nonsense? Does he agree that we want improvements in pay matched by improvements in professionalism in the teaching service? We need a well-motivated, well-trained teaching force which can impart a love of learning to the nation's children.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Teachers' Pay (17 Oct 1989)

Mr James Pawsey: ..., Hillsborough (Mr. Flannery). My right hon. Friend will learn, as we have, that they are full of sound and fury and signify very little. We have no desire to see a son of Burnham or Burnham mark 2. Burnham is discredited, but we welcome the interim advisory committee and the £600 million of additional funding in 1990–91. We also welcome the fact that this represents a doubling of...

Teacher Shortages (2 May 1989)

Mr James Pawsey: Yes, as my hon. Friend has said, "The Baker prize for excellence," would be a good title for it. Today's Opposition topic is teacher shortages and, like so many others, it is wide of the mark. The facts are that last year 1·5 per cent. of all primary and 1 per cent. of all secondary posts were unfilled—that is actually fewer than in 1987. The shortages, not surprisingly, were most felt in...

Opposition Day: Grammar Schools (Warwickshire) (9 Mar 1987)

Mr James Pawsey: ...not a coincidence. I must stress that those are overall figures which include all secondary education in each of the areas. The inescapable conclusion is that, using examination results as a bench-mark, the present system benefits more pupils than does a single comprehensive system. It has been suggested that the difference in examination results between Rugby and, for example, the...
