To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment if she will make a statement about teachers' pay in 1996–97. [38216]

I am today laying before Parliament a second Pay and Conditions Order bringing the provisions of the School Teachers' Pay and Conditions Document 1996 into force from 1 September 1996. Copies of this order are being sent to local education authorities and the teachers' and employers' organisations. I have already implemented the first stage of the 3.75 per cent. pay award for teachers by a first Pay and Conditions Order in April.

The School Teachers' Pay and Conditions Document 1996 was published on 27 June following detailed consultation with the teachers' and employers' associations and representatives of the governors of voluntary and grant-maintained schools. The document sets out the statutory pay and conditions of service for teachers in maintained schools in England and Wales.
