§ 34. Mr. William Hamilton
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what steps he intends to take to ensure that any redundancy terms pertaining to new towns staff are not less favourable than those applied to local authority staff during local government reorganisation; and what representations he has received on this matter.
§ Mr. Gregor Mackenzie
I have received one letter on this subject. The provision to be made for redundancy in respect of new towns staff in Scotland will be a matter for consideration when Scottish legislation is being prepared, but I have no reason to suppose that this would not follow existing precedent.
