HC Deb 17 June 1975 vol 893 c389W
Mr. Fairbairn

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will make a statement on the Government's plans for the future of Scottish universities, and the salaries of qualified university teachers in Scotland.

Mr. Mulley

All universities, including the Scottish, have now been informed by the UGC of their recurrent grant allocations for 1975–76. I will let the UGC know what is available for allocation in 1976–77 as soon as I can. The decision of the Board of Arbitration on academic salaries which my predecessor announced on 5th June applies to universities in Scotland as to those in England and Wales.
