HC Deb 27 July 1950 vol 478 cc121-2W
126 and 127. Mr. Kaberry

asked the Minister of Health (1) why the Leeds Regional Hospital Board continues to delay the presentation of contracts to chest physicians within that region;

(2) why the Leeds Regional Hospital Board cannot now define the point of entry to the salary scale proposed by the Board for each chest physician within that region, and pay forthwith all arrears of salary from 5th July, 1948.

Mr. Bevan

Action by the Board must await settlement of the general question of the basis of employment of these officers, which is under discussion with the local authority associations and the medical profession.
