HC Deb 10 December 1979 vol 975 cc429-30W
Mr. Ifor Davies

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what progress was made in the negotiations on university teachers' salaries at the meeting arranged for 3 December; if the principles laid down in the Leggatt arbitration award 1974 were taken into consideration; and if he will make a statement.

Dr. Boyson

Negotiations began and a further meeting has been arranged. It would not be helpful to seek to conduct pay negotiations in public.
