HC Deb 03 July 1968 vol 767 cc1471-2
3. Mr. William Hamilton

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what representations he has received criticising the salary proposals contained in Report Number 60 of the National Board for Prices and Incomes on the Pay of Nurses and Midwives in the National Health Service; and what steps he plans to take to remedy the anomalies contained within the Report's recommendations.

Mr. Millan

I would refer to the reply which my right hon. Friend gave to my hon. Friend the Member for Coatbridge and Airdrie (Mr. Dempsey) on 27th June.—[Vol. 767, c. 122–123.]

Mr. Hamilton

Will my hon. Friend bring his Answer, whatever it was, up to date, and will he say whether he has had representations from organisations representing nurses on the career structure and certain anomalies in relation to nursing tutors, as there is a good deal of concern among nurses, both individually and collectively?

Mr. Millan

The matter was brought up to date by the debate on Monday of this week, and I have nothing to add to what my right hon. Friend the Minister of Health said then. This matter has been exhaustively considered.
