§ Mr. Hooley
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether he will consult the Minister of Health to devise a formula which will maintain a constant relationship between university clinical salary scales and salary scales of doctors in the National Health Service, so to avoid recurring friction whenever the salaries of one group or the other are adjusted.
§ Mr. Goronwy Roberts
My right hon. Friend is discussing with those concerned the form new machinery for the determination of the salaries of university teachers might take. When established it would no doubt take into account the question of the relationship between the salaries of clinical teachers and those of hospital doctors in the National Health Service.
