Moonlighting muddle

April 30, 1999

Your article "The private consultancy work dilemma", (THES, April 23) about payments to Oxford lecturers in management studies is inaccurate. In certain cases, lecturers may be paid Pounds 15,000 extra a year in return for an increased teaching load of some 40 per cent and for giving up 15 of the normal 30 days' consultancy - not "in exchange for not undertaking more than 30 days of private consultancy".
