asked the Minister for the Civil Service if he will make a statement indicating the current rates of pay received by industrial civil servants at present involved in industrial action ; and what increases in pay these civil servants have received since July 1974.

Their pay for a 40-hour week ranges from £40·20 for non-craft employees to £47·41 for craftsmen. This includes basic pay, threshold payments totalling £4·40, London weighting of £7·85 and productivity bonus ranging from £3 for non-craft employees to £4·75 for craftsmen. As will be appreciated, earnings with overtime are generally well in excess of these figures.Since July 1974 they have all had increases in pay totalling £8·29, made up of threshold payments totalling £2·40 and an increase in London weighting of £5·89 which was backdated to 1st April 1974. A few have also had increases in bonus of £1·50 for non-craft employees and £2·50 for craftsmen resulting from the introduction of a new productivity scheme.
