§ Mr. Tebbit
asked the Secretary of State for Employment (1) what advice he has given to Ministers responsible for the appointment of persons to posts carrying salaries paid out of public funds concerning the £8,500 limit of earnings under his incomes policy;
(2) if the current phase of his incomes policy limiting the increase of earnings to £6 per week up to a maximum of £8,500 per annum prohibits any person accepting an additional job or jobs from increasing his total earnings above the £8,500 per annum limit.
§ Mr. Harold Walker
My Department had advised those concerned that the pay policy does not preclude individuals from taking on new work at the appropriatae rate.
