To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment when he is expecting to announce that the 1989 pay award to rent officers in England and Wales will be fully implemented.
§ Mr. Chope
[holding answer 14 December 1989]: Rent officer pay is set by reference to a Civil Service analogue, at present HEO. Rent officers have received the 4 per cent. increase awarded to HEOs from 1 April 1989, and negotiations are still proceeding on the application of other aspects of the 1989 HEO award.
