§ Mr. Dodds-Parker
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will take steps to ensure that part of the remuneration of nurses under training should be considered for tax exemption as in the case of students undergoing post-secondary training.
§ Mr. Taverne
No. A nurse under training is an employee of the hospital authority, and her remuneration cannot be disinguished for tax purposes from that received by many other employees who undergo training at the beginning of their career.
