The British Museum 2017 pay remit is subject to the usual discussions the government has with its Arm's Length Bodies regarding pay and I hope they can be concluded soon. Negotiations about terms and conditions are always unsettling for staff; the aim of government and the British Museum is to reach agreement as quickly as possible to minimise this uncertainty.
