There are 117 staff employed in the Department's Vote Group who currently are paid in line with the 10% reduced scales for newly recruited public servants effective from 1 January 2011. Under the terms of the Haddington Road Agreement, revised salary scales are currently being prepared to redress the imbalance between same grade employees who entered the public service before and after 1 January 2011.
