HC Deb 04 April 1960 vol 621 cc11-2W
80. Mr. McCann

asked the Minister of Health why his Department refuses to recognise, for incremental purposes, examinations which are accepted by other Government Departments as a standard for shorthand typists.

Miss Pitt

The Ministry follows the general Civil Service rules in this respect. If the hon. Member has National Health Service staff in mind, their conditions of service are a matter for the Administrative and Clerical Staffs Whitley Council.
