To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what the average percentage increase in salaries of non-industrial civil servants, excluding members of the senior civil service, was in his Department for 2000–01. [152799]

In my Department the average performance-related increase in salaries for staff below the senior civil service was 4.5 per cent. in the 2000–01 pay round. Negotiations are continuing in the Royal Parks Agency on their settlement.
