HC Deb 13 November 1973 vol 864 cc84-5W
Mr. Ronald Brown

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if she will publish the reasons for including in the salary scales of M grade academic staff at London University an element for London weighting and for not including such an element in any other grades of staff.

Mr. St. John-Stevas

Salaries of university teachers are negotiated on a national basis between the Department, the universities and the staff. Provision is made for an allowance for those working in London. Salaries and wages of other staff at London University are negotiated directly between the university and its employees.
