HC Deb 16 December 1980 vol 996 c131W
Mr. John Garrett

asked the Minister for the Civil Service what progress is being made in introducing a unified grading system in the Civil Service below the grade of under secretary.

Mr. Channon

The hon. Member is aware that this is a complex subject which has been extensively examined in the past. The Government have, however, noted the relevant recommendation in the recent report of the Treasury and Civil Service Committee on the future of the Civil Service Department and will be considering it.
