The written ministerial statement about education spending released by the Secretary of State for Education, Michael Gove, to the House of Commons.

This was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government
The Rt Hon Michael Gove MP

The Secretary of State for Education Michael Gove today laid before the House of Commons a written ministerial statement on education spending.

The Government has today announced a two year pay freeze for all public sector workforces from 2011-12, but remains committed to honouring in full the three-year pay award recommended by the School Teachers’ Review Body. I can therefore confirm that the teachers’ pay uplift for this year will be implemented from September 2010, marking the last instalment of their three-year pay award.
