HC Deb 13 July 1950 vol 477 cc121-2W
93. Mr. Aitken

asked the Minister of Health if he will take steps to remove the discrepancy between the salaries paid to health visitors and those paid to assistant welfare officers by bringing the former's remuneration to the same level as that of assistant welfare officers, in view of the higher professional qualifications and training required by health visitors.

Mr. Bevan

This is a matter for the negotiating machinery. A new salary scale has recently been agreed for health visitors as a result of an award by the Industrial Court.
