48. Mr. Gresham Cooke
asked the Minister of Health to how many staff, and for what period the award of £6,423,500, referred to on page 6 of the Supplementary Estimate for the National Health Service of 14th November, 1960, will be paid.
§ The Minister of Health (Mr. Enoch Powell)
About 282,000, under thirty awards operative from various dates.
Mr. Gresham Cooke
Can my right hon. Friend say whether the 280,000 are, as I imagine, administrative and clerical staff of hospitals? If so, do these awards follow automatically on the Pilkington award?
§ Mr. Powell
There is quite an appreciable amount of administrative staff involved. The awards are not connected with the Pilkington recommendatons.
