§ Mr. Ifor Davies
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what 430W 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.
