HC Deb 08 November 1974 vol 880 c236W
Mr. van Straubenzee

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what he estimates the cost both to the Exchequer and to local education authorities would be in the academic year 1974–75 of raising polytechnic teachers' pay to the same level as they would get at universities.

Mr. Armstrong

Based on current salary scales and estimated average salaries for teachers in polytechnics and universities the estimated total cost from public funds would be of the order of £11 million.
