HC Deb 18 June 1997 vol 296 c162W
Mr. Flynn

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what assessment he has made of the results of the recent LSE study into performance-related pay in the Civil Service; and if he will make a statement. [3660]

Dr. David Clark

The LSE study into performance-related pay looks at only one Department, that of the Inland Revenue. The study was sponsored by the Public Services Tax and Commerce Union and covers perceptions about performance management and performance pay amongst 1,200 of the Inland Revenue's 55,000 staff. The study is not yet complete and has not been released. I am therefore unable to comment on it at this stage. If the study does raise issues of general staff concern, the Inland Revenue, as a good employer, will discuss these with the staff and trade unions involved.
