HC Deb 08 July 1980 vol 988 c105W
27. Mr. Hannam

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will make a statement on the current position with regard to the implementation of the university teachers' pay award.

Dr. Boyson

I refer my hon. Friend to the reply I gave earlier today to my hon. Friends the Members for Edinburgh, South (Mr. Ancram) and for Bromsgrove and Redditch (Mr. Miller) and the hon. Member for West Stirlingshire (Mr. Canavan).

55. Mr. Urwin

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what representations he has received from the university authorities and the Association of University Teachers about university teachers' pay; what replies he has sent; and when he proposes to announce a settlement of the pay issue outwith the jurisdiction of the Clegg Commission.

Dr. Boyson

The Association of University Teachers asked for a meeting with my right hon. and learned Friend. He met the association on 10 June and assured it that there would be no unnecessary delays. He will make an announcement when an agreement is reached.
