§ 60. Mr. Watkins
asked the Minister of Agriculture if he will raise the salaries of scientific workers in his research stations to a higher level than £250 per annum, to ensure the recruitment of efficient men.
§ Mr. T. Williams
The salaries of qualified scientific workers in the research stations for which my Department is responsible are already generally in excess of £250 per annum, and the scales are now being reviewed in the light of the proposals in the White Paper on the Scientific Civil Service. If my hon. Friend has any particular grade in mind, perhaps he will let me have details.
§ Mr. Beechman
Will the right hon. Gentleman consider these salaries in relation to those of the workers in the fishery research station?
§ Mr. Williams
I think I said that these salaries are being reviewed in the light of the White Paper on the Scientific Civil Service
