HC Deb 23 July 1982 vol 28 c305W
Mr. Charles R. Morris

asked the Secretary of State for Wales 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. Nicholas Edwards

None, apart from the National Health Service where electricians, plumbers and their assistants settled within 4 per cent. Following my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Social Services' announcement in his statement to the House on 23 June that additional resources had been made available to improve pay offers to Health Service staff, negotiations were reopened and a revised agreement within 6 per cent. has now been reached
