asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how he proposes to ensure that members of the Professional Association of Teachers are to be involved in consultation on superannuation issues.

My right hon. Friend is required to consult representatives of local education authorities and of teachers and of such other persons as appear to him to be appropriate before making regulations under the Superannuation Act 1972.
