§ 43. Mr. Raphael Tuck
asked the Minister of Health how many qualified State-registered medical laboratory technicians have been declared redundant by their hospital management committees over the last three years.
§ Mr. K. Robinson
My Department is normally notified only when redundancy payments are made; there is no record of payments in respect of medical laboratory technicians.
§ Mr. Robinson
I can assure my hon. Friend that I understand that there have not been redundancies in this grade. I understand that there is a laboratory in his constituency which is shortly to be closed and that the future of one registered technician is under consideration by the hospital authority.
