HC Deb 28 July 1960 vol 627 cc178-9W
67. Mr. Sorsensen

asked the Minister of Education what are the hours of work, pay and conditions of employees acting as custodians of exhibits at the Commonwealth Institute and similar institutions under his control; and whether those hours of work, pay and conditions are equated with comparable employment in other Government Departments.

Sir D. Eccles

I am sending the hon. Member this information. The hours, pay and conditions for attendants at the Commonwealth Institute are generally in line with those for warders in national museums and galleries. The main difference is that attendants come under the Institute's own contributory superannuation scheme and not under the Civil Service Superannuation Acts.
