§ 75. Mr. Sheldon
asked the Minister for the Civil Service if he will make a statement on the progress towards a unified grading structure.
§ Mr. David Howell
A study has almost been completed of a possible new grading and pay structure for the top levels of the Civil Service. A study is also in progress of the levels immediately below.
We are also proceeding with the consideration of interim mergers covering:
The Administrative, Executive and Clerical Classes;
The Scientific Classes; and
The Works Group of Professional Classes and the classes associated with it.
