§ Mr. Alex Carlile
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will place in the Library a copy of the regulations relating to the scales for, and payment of, performance-related pay for immigration officers posted at United Kingdom ports; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Mr. Howard
[holding answer 12 February 1996]: Immigration Officers receive performance pay in accordance with the national 1992 pay agreements and subsequent pay settlements negotiated between the Treasury and the National Union of Civil and Public 520W Servants. The placing of these papers in the Library is a matter for my right hon. and learned Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer. Certain discretionary arrangements were negotiated within my Department and published in a departmental notice, a copy of which I have arranged to place in the Library.
