§ Viscount Davidson
asked Her Majesty's Government:
How the Government intend to implement Recommendation 17 of the 1994 Report of the Senior Salaries Review Body.
§ The Lord Chancellor (Lord Mackay of Clashfern)
Recommendation 17 of the 1994 Report of the Senior Salaries Review Body is that the Government should seek to achieve the salary levels for the judiciary proposed in the 1992 Report of the Top Salaries Review body, plus regular uprating, by 1st April 1999. My right honourable friend the Prime Minister announced the findings of the Senior Salaries Review Body on 3rd February 1994(Official Report), Col. 849). The Government have decided that the recommended salary levels should be achieved by spreading the increase evenly over the next five financial years, starting with 1st April 1995 and on 1st April thereafter to 1st April 1999.
