HC Deb 08 November 1977 vol 938 cc61-2W
Mr. Teddy Taylor

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will make a 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.
