Record of Amendments 2009 (Volume one)
This gives details of changes to the handbook from November 2009 back to December 2004 when the handbook was first published.
Before 2008 the handbook was not always updated immediately when a new Pay and Conditions Circular was published. There was no standard method of indicating versions/amendment numbers. Therefore, the published amendments to the handbook do not mirror the published Pay and Conditions Circulars in every case. Readers should refer to the Record of Amendments Volume one (above) for a complete chronological record of all amendments prior to 1 January 2009.
