Abstract: Let $ G$ be a finite complex irreducible linear group of degree less than $ p-1$ for some fixed prime $ p$, whose order is divisible by $ p$ to the first power only, and which has no normal Sylow $ p$-subgroup. An inequality of Brauer, which bounds $ p$ by a function of the number of conjugate classes of $ p$-elements, is improved.
