HL Deb 10 June 2004 vol 662 cc44-5WA
Lord Laird

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Further to the Written Answer by the Lord President on 22 April (WA 56), what was the percentage increase in Northern Ireland civil servants' salaries between £135,584 to £229,449 from 1 April 2004: how this compares with the last increase; and when was that increase made. [HL2957]

Baroness Amos

The figures quoted in the reply on 22 April are the minimum and maximum of the scale and do not represent an increase for any individual to £229,449. No awards within this scale, with effect from 1 April 2004, have yet been made.
