HC Deb 07 November 1950 vol 480 cc39-40W
62. Mr. J. McKay

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he is aware that there are occasions when a civil servant becomes established and his salary is reduced although he continues doing the same work as before establishment; what regulations he has made in respect of such cases and under what special conditions such treatment is considered justifiable.

Mr. Gaitskell

The arrangements for fixing the starting pay of temporary civil servants on establishment are not uniform. They are agreed for each group, with the staff representatives concerned, in the light of the relevant circumstances, which might justify a reduction in salary. If my hon. friend has any case in mind and would let me have particulars I should be glad to look into it.

82. Mr. York

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury what stage the negotiations over increases of pay for clerical officers of the Civil Service, have reached.

Mr. Jay

Disagreement has been recorded, and the matter is being referred to the Civil Service Arbitration Tribunal. Terms of reference have been agreed but the date of the hearing has not yet been fixed.
