A LOTHIANS MSP has expressed concern over “excessive” pay differences between senior university figures and front line staff after a new code on higher education governance was published.

Alison Johnstone, education spokeswoman for the Scottish Greens, welcomed the new code, published yesterday, which she said would help make governing bodies more representative of society. But she said: “I have long-standing concerns that senior university figures receive excessive pay compared to front line staff and I remain concerned at the use of zero-hours contracts in our universities.”
