§ Mr. Sillars
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what increases in pay under phase 2 of the incomes policy have been made to Scottish and English local government administrative grades; and how many grades in each part of the United Kingdom have had deductions due to incremental drift.
§ Mr. McElhone
I have been asked to reply.355W
None. The annual settlement date for local government administrative grades in Scotland is 1st July, and I understand that the same date applies in England. Consequently, none of these grades have had any deductions under phase 2 of the incomes policy due to "incremental drift".
