To ask the Minister for Education and Skills when the new payment scale for new primary school teachers agreed with the social partners of €30,702 will come into effect; the reason for the delay in implementing this arrangement; whether arrears are now owing to teachers who will benefit from this pay scale and if so when will these arrears be paid; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

The most significant adjustment to teacher pay arising from the recent Government decision on allowances is that new entrant teachers will not receive qualification allowances but will start on a new salary scale, the first point of which is equivalent to the fourth point of the existing scale. This new salary scale will apply in the case of all teachers who are new appointees to teaching on or after 1 February 2012.
