John Patten, the Education Secretary, yesterday accused leaders of the National Union of Teachers of obstructing the review of national curriculum tests by still withholding this year's results, the Times reports (p8).

The paper says that the first meeting between Mr Patten and the NUT this year ended in acrimony as the union refused to call off its action.

Teachers have been assured by Mr Patten that this year's tests will not be used to compile league tables but few are expected to hand over the results, says the Times.
