HC Deb 01 July 1957 vol 572 c674
24. Mr. Palmer

asked the Paymaster-General what steps are being taken to carry out the recommendation of the Herbert Committee, made in January, 1956, that the Government should reconsider the levels of remuneration of Electricity Board members.

Mr. Maudling

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given by my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister to the hon. Member for Orkney and Shetland (Mr. Grimond) on 4th June.

Mr. Palmer

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the continued neglect by the Government of this question is really not fair to the leaders of the nationalised industries?

Mr. Maudling

The Government are certainly not neglecting the question. My right hon. Friend the Prime Minister said that he hoped to make a statement shortly.
