MPs quit University roles.

MPs quit University roles.

Three more MPs are to quit their roles at the University of Bath in protest over the vice-chancellor's "unjustifiable" pay.

Prof Dame Glynis Breakwell earns £451,000 a year and is the highest paid vice-chancellor in the country.

Labour's Bristol East MP Kerry McCarthy, Bristol North West MP Darren Jones and Stroud MP David Drew all confirmed they are standing down.

Andrew Murrison, MP for South West Wiltshire, resigned two weeks ago.

All four were ex-officio members of the Court of Bath University, a statutory body representing the interests of the university's internal and external stakeholders.

Ms McCarthy said her resignation was to "put down a marker" about the "absolutely massive increases in pay that vice-chancellors in universities across the country have been getting recently".

She said that it was not "sustainable" or "fair" while "tuition fees are going up and students are struggling".
