HC Deb 29 October 1985 vol 84 cc462-3W
Lord James Douglas-Hamilton

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether extra funds will be made available to ensure that doctors and dentists in teaching hospitals, but employed by universities, have the same pay rise as their National Health Service colleagues.

Sir Keith Joseph

The Government are currently considering a request from the Committee of Vice Chancellors and Principals that recurrent grant paid to universities should be increased for this purpose. A response has been promised within the next month.
