HC Deb 23 February 1972 vol 831 cc1272-3
23. Mr. MacArthur

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what representations he has received regarding the employment prospects of National Health Service employees following reorganisation of the service.

Mr. Gordon Campbell

Many comments on our White Paper (Cmnd. 4734) were to the effect that the employment prospects and other legitimate interests of National Health Service staff should be safeguarded following reorganisation. The Government fully share this view and the Bill at present being considered in another place contains provisions designed to safeguard these interests.
