§ 69. Miss Bacon
asked the Minister of Health if he is aware of the discontent among the staff nurses in hospitals because the new agreement on nurses' salaries does not allow for extra payment until 96 hours per fortnight have been worked and what action he proposes to take in this matter.
§ Mr. Walker-Smith
No. The new arrangements for additional payments were agreed between the two Sides of the Whitley Council and the latter part of the Question does not therefore arise.
