§ Mr. Worthington
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland how much the principals of each of the central institutions were paid in 1987–88, 1988–89, 1989–90 and 1990–91.433W
§ Mr. Lang
[holding answer 15 May 1990]: This information is not held centrally. Until February 1990, the salary levels were determined on the basis of agreements of the Scottish joint negotiating committee for teaching staff in further education which has now been abolished and I am sending to the hon. Gentleman copies of the relevant circulars issued by the joint committee. Salaries are now for determination by the boards of governors of the colleges themselves.
