§ Mr. Dalyell
asked the Secretary of State for Energy on what basis certain employees of the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority have been offered pay increases in the form of market premium payments; which categories of employees have received such offers; what those offers comprise; what were the criteria used for selection of these categories; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Goodlad
The principle of awarding special additions to pay in response to proven difficulties in recruiting and retaining staff with scarce skills is now well established. I am asking the chairman of the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority to write to the hon. Member with details of the particular proposals to which he refers.
