HC Deb 11 March 1982 vol 19 cc490-1W
24. Mr. Jim Marshall

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will make a statement on future pay policy in the Civil Service.

Mr. Hayhoe

The Government have appointed an independent inquiry, chaired by the right hon. Sir John Megaw, to make recommendations on the future principles and system for determining non-industrial Civil Service pay. The inquiry has been asked to report by this summer, so that its recommendations can be considered in good time before the 1983 Civil Service pay settlement.
