asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he has received the reports of the arbitral bodies on the pay of school teachers in England and Wales and on London allowances for teachers in schools and in further education; and if he will make a statement.

I have received the reports of both arbitral bodies. The former recommends an increase as from 1 April 1982 of 6 per cent. in salaries and allowances, other than social priority schools and London allowances, for primary and secondary school teachers. The latter recommends the following London allowances, to apply from 1 April 1981:

Inner London834
Outer London549
Fringe area231
I have set in hand the steps necessary to give effect to these recommendations in accordance with sections 2 and 4(1) of the Remuneration of Teachers Act 1965.
