§ 96. Mr. K. Robinson
asked the Minister of Health how many specially designated senior registrar posts he intends to approve; what guidance he is giving to regional hospital boards in this matter; and what will be the higher rate of pay attaching to these posts.31W
§ Mr. Walker-Smith
The number of posts to be approved will be decided on merits after the Boards' proposals have been received. I am about to discuss with the Joint Committee the guidance to be sent to Boards, and I will send the hon. Member a copy of this guidance as soon as it is settled. Rates of pay will be a matter for negotiation.
