HC Deb 28 January 1949 vol 460 c188W
Mr. S. Marshall

asked the Minister of Health, to what extent Group Hospital Management Committees are limited in the creation of various posts on the domestic staffs of the hospitals, such as out-patients' amenities officers and similar extra positions outside the recognised ordinary established posts.

Mr. Bevan

Subject to the urgent need for economy in staff appointments and a restriction on the numbers of senior officers, Hospital Management Committees are free to plan their own establishments within the approved grades and to determine the functions and titles of the officers appointed in those grades.
