HC Deb 26 October 1972 vol 843 cc413-4W
Mr. Stallard

asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he is aware that skilled employees of Remploy receive only 80 per cent. of the negotiated trade union rates of pay in outside industry; and what steps he is taking to review this matter.

Mr. Dudley Smith

The rates of pay of the severely disabled workers employed percentage of men, women and total unemployed in the Lancaster-Morecambe and Loughborough areas, respectively, for each month since September, 1971.

Mr. Dudley Smith

Following is the information:

by Remploy are negotiated nationally between the management and a consortium of the trade unions concerned. Any review of these rates is therefore a matter for the two sides.
