Wiltshire MP Andrew Murrison raised worries about reports of axe falling on Royal Marines.

West MP: 'Out of kilter' university Vice Chancellor's pay must be addressed

University vice-chancellors' pay has "got out of kilter" with the public sector and needs to be dealt with as a "matter of urgency", according to MP, Andrew Murrison.

The Conservative representative of South West Wiltshire - who quit a role at Bath University earlier this year in protest over the "eye-watering" pay of its vice-chancellor, Professor Dame Glynis Breakwell - today called for the Government to have a "very firm conversation" with the sector.

"I see no evidence to suggest that paying people more is going to improve the quality of the institution - if anything the data seems to suggest the reverse," he said.

More than 200 dairy farms are reported to have closed in the West, following nearly five years of getting less for their milk than it costs to produce.
