HC Deb 23 July 1970 vol 804 c198W
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.
