HC Deb 20 January 1987 vol 108 cc501-2W
26. Mr. Cohen

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether he will make a statement on the level of non-academic pay in higher education.

Mr. Kenneth Baker

The Government are not involved in the pay negotiations for this group of staff. It is for universities and local education authorities to reach agreement on pay levels which they can afford having regard to recruitment, retention and motivation.
