HC Deb 19 December 1955 vol 547 c236W
24. Mr. Parker

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that the increased rent charge for unfurnished accommodation from 1st April, 1955, for midwives and nurses was not notified by the local employing authority until November, 1955, when a debt for over £15 had been retrospectively incurred; and whether he will take steps to ensure that such increases are in future notified in advance.

Mr. Iain Macleod

The date of operation of the negotiated agreement is a matter entirely for the Whitley Council. Its detailed application to individual cases is one for the employing local authorities.
