§ Mr. David Alton
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science what representations he has received about university lecturers' pay and conditions; and if he will make a statement.
My right hon. Friend has received representations from the Committee of Vice-Chancellors and Principals and the Association of University Teachers seeking additional funding for pay increases for university staff. He has also had many letters both about salary levels in universities and in criticism of the boycott of examination work by lecturers.
