The article discusses a recommendation from Great Britain's University and College Union that university vice-chancellors in Great Britain be subject to more rigid pay scrutiny. The recommendation follows an article in the "Times Higher Education" newspaper that outlined the pay increases for British vice-chancellors from 2005-2007 and pointed out that the annual salary of most of the officials targeted in that period exceeded that of the Prime Minister.
