asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what representations he has received with regard to the pay of university teachers at Brunel University and elsewhere; and if he will make a statement.

My right hon. Friend the Member for Newham, North-East (Mr. Prentice) received about 900 letters on behalf of such teachers, and he held talks with representatives of university authorities and teachers. He announced on 5th June the decision of the Board of Arbitration on university academic salaries. When the fuller report of the Board of Arbitration has been received I will have it published.


asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science when he expects to receive the report from the Arbitration and Conciliation Service on the pay claim of university teachers.

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which I gave earlier today to Questions by the hon. Members for Dorking (Sir G. Sinclair) and Ripon (Dr. Hampson).
