Education secretary David Blunkett has announced that an emergency summit will be held between government and teachers next week in a last minute bid to stave off industrial action.

The Financial Times (p7) reports that teachers' leaders said the government move may have come too late to stop a boycott on administrative duties due to start at the end of April.

Mr Blunkett announced the talks plan in a speech at the NASUWT conference in Scarborough yesterday.
