Teacher’s Strike

Asked how the Government was responding to the teachers’ strike, the PMS replied that there were words from the Prime Minister earlier today, and Jim Knight had been out and about this morning.

Asked why Ed Balls was not responding, the PMS replied that he would not read anything into that at all, but check with the department.

Asked if the Prime Minister had any sympathy for the teachers, the PMS replied that it was the Prime Minister’s view as he said this morning, that the pay decision was made by an independent pay review body, they made a recommendation that was accepted by the Government and therefore it was regrettable for pupils and parents that a minority of teachers were out on strike.
