Mr. W. E. Garrett
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what are the reasons for the delay in the implementation of the interim pay award to radiographers that was an agreed part of 1979 salary negotiations and should have been paid from 1 August 1979.
§ Dr. Vaughan
The interim award which is payable to radiographers and other professions supplementary to medicine with effect from 1 August 1979 is, by agreement, based on the corresponding award to nurses arising from the recommendations of the Standing Commission on pay comparability in a report which was published early in January (Cmnd. 7795). The new revised salary levels have been agreed by the Professional and Technical A Whitley Council and have been notified to all employing authorities in the usual way.
