Dr SOLOMON (DENISON, TASMANIA) - My question refers to the recent statement on university salaries by the Minister for Education and Science. I refer to the one major recommendation of Mr Justice Eggleston's report which I believe is educationally unfortunate, namely, the award of a lesser percentage increase at the bottom of the lecturing scale than at the higher levels. Will the Minister give active consideration to redressing this differential treatment in a field of employment where the problem of attracting first class teachers or lecturers is more serious than that of holding established professors and where responsibility of work load and accountability for decisions taken are probably more equally shared than in any other field, including parliamentary office?
