HC Deb 15 June 1981 vol 6 c239W
Mr. Speller

asked the Minister for the Civil Service how much has been saved through non-payment of civil servants taking industrial action.

Mr. Hayhoe

I estimate that the total deductions from the pay of those non-industrial civil servants who took part in industrial action between 9 March and 9 June, both dates inclusive, will be more than £18 million.
