F25 [ Correction of anomalies consequential on operation of section 6A

6B. Where the operation of section 6A results in the basic salary of a public servant to whom subsection (3) , (4) or (5) of that section applies being higher than the basic salary applicable to the next immediate point, or (if such is the case) any higher point, on the pay scale that applies to the public servant, the Minister may, having taken into account all of the circumstances that relate to the existence of the differential between the points on that scale

( a ) by direction, increase the basic salary applicable to, as the case may be

(i) that next immediate point, or

(ii) that higher point, and, if appropriate, one or more of the points below that point,

on that scale to such extent as the Minister thinks fit so as to maintain an equitable differential between the points on that scale, or

( b ) determine that in respect of certain categories of public servant to whom that scale applies, the basic salary to be paid, for the time being, to those public servants shall, to such extent as the Minister thinks fit so as to maintain an equitable differential between the various salaries payable to the several public servants to whom that scale applies, be greater or less than an amount provided by a particular point on that scale. ]
