HC Deb 11 December 1995 vol 268 c488W
Dr. Goodson-Wickes

To ask the Deputy Prime Minister what reviews he has undertaken on the pay and conditions of service of special advisers. [3290]

Mr. Willetts

We are implementing the Nolan recommendation that special advisers should be subject to the same scrutiny as other civil servants in respect of business appointments which they propose to take up within two years of leaving service. We are also considering changes in their pay arrangements to take account of changes in the civil service pay structure.
