§ Mr. Steele
asked the Minister of Labour whether he has yet received notice of a dispute which has arisen following the further negotiations in the Probation Officers' Committee of the Scottish Joint Industrial Council for Local Authority Services, to which reference was made in his reply on 21st July, with regard to the salaries of senior probation officers in Scotland; when he received notice of this dispute; and what action he has taken about it.
§ Mr. Iain Macleod
The further negotiations referred to in my reply of 21st July led to a partial settlement, which did not, however, include senior probation officers. No dispute has been reported to me.
