Q25.

asked the Prime Minister what increases in absolute and percentage terms would be necessary to restore Scottish teachers' salaries to the position established following the Houghton committee in 1974.

The average salary paid to Scottish teachers on 1 April 1985, the date from which the next settlement should run, is around £800 (8 per cent.) less than the figure obtained by increasing the average salary following the 1974 Houghton award to allow for changes in the retail price index in the intervening period.
