HC Deb 11 October 1976 vol 917 c38W
Mr. John Page

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether he is aware of the anxiety felt by the staff of the international coordinated organisations, NATO, OECD, WEU, ESA and Council of Europe, over the changes made to the current system of wage adjustment and negotiation; what negotiations are at present taking place with the staff organisation; and whether he will make a statement.

Dr. Owen

The present discussions with the Secretaries-General and the staff organisations are unlikely to alter the basic system but should provide for adjustments to be made in the light of more detailed and accurate evidence. The views of the staff are being taken fully into account.
