HC Deb 24 November 1971 vol 826 c373W
Mr. Spearing

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what are the basic weekly rates of pay for Custodians of the Palace of Westminster, the current rates of overtime and the total amount of back pay on overtime now owed by his Department; and if he is satisfied with the efficiency of the current payment procedures.

Mr. Channon

Custodians are paid on an annual salary scale of £1,144–£1,212 and senior custodians on the scale £1,292–£1,336. Overtime rates vary from 65p to 76p per hour. I am satisfied that the payment of arrears of overtime, which total about £1,700, is being given proper priority.
