HC Deb 30 October 1947 vol 443 c100W
67. Professor Gruffydd

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer why scientific officers on production duties in the Ministry of Supply and in the Admiralty are not classified and paid as scientists, seeing that they must be fully trained, qualified, and experienced, and that many of them possess research degrees and have had wide research experience.

Mr. Glenvil Hall

Scales for the Scientific Officer Class are intended for staff engaged on research and development; those employed on production work receive pay and conditions appropriate to that work. (These matters are, or will be, discussed with the staff representatives in the Departments concerned.)
