§ Mr. Kinnock
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science, further to his reply to the hon. Member for Upminster (Mr. Loveridge), Official Report, 11 June, column 198–99, what proposals his Department has now put forward to the other parties to the negotiations on university teachers' pay.
§ Mr. Mark Carlisle
The joint proposals of the Association of University Teachers and the university authorities' panel are still under consideration but I hope that a meeting of the negotiating committee will be arranged shortly.
