It added: "In light of the positions expressed to date by the ANPF
and Mr Bricolage, the anti-trust clearance will not be obtained by 31 March 2015 and therefore the July 2014 agreement will lapse on that date.
In order to facilitate Open Space, representatives attending the ANPF
will be provided with explanatory notes to read as they arrive for the session.
Another concern from last year's ANPF was the lack of training places and the impact of this on practice teachers.
We are looking forward to a lively debate at the ANPF prior to this year's conference, and as usual we welcome observers to the forum.
The themes raised at the ANPF were then used to steer Unite/CPHVA's professional agenda, and professional officers will report on the achievements they have since made to the ANPF at this year's conference in Harrogate in November.
The ANPF 2008 will be held in the Queen's Suite of Harrogate International Centre at 3pm on 19 November--the day before the annual professional conference opens.
