HC Deb 21 July 1982 vol 28 c178W
Mr. Charles R. Morris

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland which groups and grades in the public sector for which he has ministerial responsibility have so far settled at 4 per cent. or less in the current 1981–82 pay round.

Mr. Younger

Electricians and plumbers and their assistants in the National Health Service settled within 4 per cent. Following the announcement on 23 June that additional resources had been made available to improve pay offers to Health Service staff, these negotiations were reopened and a revised agreement within 6 per cent. has now been reached.
