HC Deb 20 February 1984 vol 54 c375W
Mr. Gould

asked the Prime Minister whether there is any provision for compensation in the contract of the chief economic adviser in the event of his being politically unacceptable to an incoming Government before the end of his contract.

The Prime Minister

No. As with any civil servant under a limited period appointment, the question of compensation for termination of service, for whatever reason, before the end of the period of service originally agreed would be a matter to be settled between the individual and the Government.
