HC Deb 12 June 1981 vol 6 c222W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Lord Privy Seal whether the Government's policy of a 6 per cent. salary and wage limit to public servants has been applied to the members and staff of the Commonwealth Development Corporation.

Mr. Neil Marten

Any salary increases for members of the board of the corporation will fall to be considered in accordance with the new arrangements for determining the salaries of chairmem amd board members of nationalised industries announced by the Prime Minister in the House on 7 April 1981. Under the Commonwealth Development Corporation Act 1978, the corporation is free to pay its staff such remuneration as it may determine.
