To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what the average teacher's salary in each local education authority in England was in the most recent year for which figures are available. [119050]

The table shows the average annual salary of full-time regular qualified teachers in the maintained sector in England by LEA at 31/3/2001. This is the latest information available. Figures cover all grades and include any allowances paid. The figures are provisional.The average salary figures include some threshold payments that were made before March 2001, following the introduction of the threshold in September 2000. Some threshold assessments were not made in time for the associated payments to be reflected in the March 2001 data, but these were ultimately backdated to September 2000. As a result the figures in the table will be an under estimate of the actual average salary in March 2001.
