HC Deb 05 December 1960 vol 631 c852
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.
