§ 1. Mr. Hector Hughes
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he has yet considered the memorandum which the Association of University Teachers submitted to him on the subject of the inadequacy of the salaries of university teachers; and what steps he proposes to take to deal with the problems which that memorandum raises.
§ Mr. H. Brooke
I assume that the hon. and learned Member is referring to a memorandum on salaries which the Association of University Teachers submitted more than a year ago to the Committee of Vice-Chancellors and Principals and of which the Association were good enough in July, 1954, to send my right hon. Friend a copy. My right hon. Friend announced last November a revision of university academic salaries, effective from 1st October, 1954, and costing some £2¼ million a year.
