The Vice-Chancellor of Bath University has been criticised in the House of Lords for setting an "example of greed"
Dame Glynis Breakwell earns almost £500,000 in pay and perks in her role.
Speaking in a debate on public sector pay, the former education minister Lord Adonis called on the government to intervene to cut the salaries paid to vice chancellors.
The salary and conditions of service of our Vice-Chancellor are independently determined by the Remuneration Committee of our University Council and are comparable with that of long-standing Vice-Chancellors in other successful universities. The increase reported in the 2015-16 accounts reflects her excellent track record and the confidence placed in her leadership of the senior team and the wider University community.

England's international netball match against South Africa at Bath's Sporting Village is a sell-out. Five members from Team Bath will be playing today.
I can’t wait for it to start. It will be good to put our training into action on the court.
Bath is my home and the crowd here is fantastic. That makes it really special.
The crowd are close to the court and that gives it a great atmosphere. It’s always an honour to captain your country.”
It will be good to get back out there in England colours. Everyone has been training hard and the intensity is good, but we’re all pretty relaxed.
Most of the squad have had some experience of playing in Bath during their careers, so we love playing in front of the amazing crowd here.”
The mood in the camp is absolutely fantastic. South Africa are the sort of team that keep you honest, so if you don’t play well they’ll capitalise on it. We want to win it and we want to win it convincingly. We’ll be trying to put out four consistent quarters over three matches.
