§ 78. Mr. J. DAVISON
asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that the recent increase in pay awarded to the temporary clerical staffs in the Ministry of Labour as from April last has not been paid to the clerical staff in the Appointments Department of the Ministry of Labour; and will he state the reason for the delay in this case?
§ The MINISTER of LABOUR (Sir R. Horne)
The increased rates of pay awarded to the temporary clerical staffs in the headquarters offices of the Appointments Department were brought into operation in July last.
The question of the revised rates to be paid to the provincial staffs of that Department has only recently been decided; but instructions were issued a week ago for the introduction of the revised rates, and for the payment of file arrears due on the basis of those rates.
