§ Mr. Fatchett
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether any grades working within the prison service of his Department qualify for efficiency or performance bonuses; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Mellor
The Civil Service performance bonus scheme has been applied throughout the prison department. The scheme applies to staff from grade 3 to grade 7 in the unified grading system and any departmental equivalents not already within the unified grading structure.
