HC Deb 06 November 1978 vol 957 c26W
29. Mr. Marten

asked the Secretary of State for Employment whether extra payment for arriving at work on time is regarded as an allowable productivity deal within the Government's pay policy.

Mr. Harold Walker

It is the responsibility of negotiators to ensure that self-financing productivity schemes, including those where payments are made in relation to timekeeping and attendance, are in accordance with the policy set out in the White Paper "Winning the Battle Against Inflation" (Cmnd. 7293).
