HC Deb 11 June 1981 vol 6 c178W
16. Mr. Farr

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make a statement on the pay of prison governors.

Mr. Mayhew

My right hon. Friend informed the House on 31 October 1979 that the Government accepted and would implement the recommendations of the May committee—Cmnd. 7673—for increased pay scales for prison governors. Apart from last year's central pay settlement, a further pay award has since been made to assistant prison governors reflecting developments in the prison service since the May committee reported.
