§ Mr. Teddy Taylor
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will make a 62W statement on the pay negotiations with the Scottish firemen.
§ Mr. Millan
There are no separate negotiations on pay for Scottish firemen. The employees' side of the NJC recommended the employers' offer for acceptance by their delegate conference on 7th November, but the conference rejected the offer and voted to commence industrial action from 14th November.
