Written answers (Question to Jobs)

Revised payscales for new entrants, which provide for reduced salaries relative to those of serving staff, were introduced with effect from 1 November 2011. As there has been no subsequent appointments in my Department at any of the grades affected, there are no staff members on lower payscales relative to their colleagues.
