The issue raised by the Deputy would only impact on the grades of Services Officer and Cleaner at my Department. However, the staff presently engaged at these grades are on incremental pay scales and have extensive service and in recognition of this they are on the higher points of the scale which exceed the rate mentioned by the Deputy in his question.
