asked the Minister for the Civil Service what will be the effect on the Civil Service of the Clegg Commission comparability award.

The Clegg Commission does not deal directly with the pay of any Civil Service grades. There is however, a relatively small number of civil servants—about 6,000, mainly nursing and teaching staff—whose pay and conditions of service are based upon those which apply to those doing similar work elsewhere in the public service. Some of these outside groups have been the subject of work by the Clegg Commission, and the resultant settlements will therefore affect civil servants in the grades in question.
