HC Deb 11 May 1951 vol 487 cc273-4W
Mr. Hastings

asked the Minister of Health what categories of staff are included in the estimate of expenditure of £21,144,000 in the hospital estimates for England and Wales under the heading, "Other staff."

Mr. Marquand

The estimated expenditure of £21,144,000 relates to a great variety of staff who cannot be classified in a small number of groups but about one-half of the amount is for "domestic staff" and another quarter for "porters," using those terms in a broad sense.
