HC Deb 23 November 1950 vol 481 cc71-2W
67. Mrs. Castle

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in view of the fact that the proposals of the Chorley Committee on Higher Civil Service Remuneration are now being carried into effect, he will take steps to implement the principle of equal pay in the Civil Service.

Mr. Jay

As my right hon. Friend is shortly to receive a deputation from the Staff Side of the Civil Service National Whitley Council, I should prefer, at this stage, merely to say that there is, in my view, no necessary connection between the recent revision of the salaries of the higher Civil Service and the introduction of equal pay.
