Civil Servants: Redundancy Pay

Volume 507: debated on Tuesday 16 March 2010

To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office what consideration she gave to the introduction of changes to the Civil Service Compensation scheme to apply to new entrants to the civil service. (322437)

My statement of 3 February 2010, Official Report, columns 11-13WS announced changes to the Civil Service Compensation scheme and the process which led up to those changes. Some respondents to the consultation exercise suggested that the changes should only apply to new entrants. However, the package agreed with five of the six main civil service unions applies to all staff, with existing staff covered by transitional provisions.
