HC Deb 20 July 1970 vol 804 cc50-1W
Mr. Judd

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether he will make a statement on the Government's policy towards the pay structure for all personnel in the National Health Service.

Sir K. Joseph

In general, questions of pay structure will continue to be settled by negotiation in the Whitley Councils, where my representatives will play a full part in securing necessary improvements. Discussion with the profession on changes in the hospital medical staffing structure will be energetically pursued as soon as the discussions on the outstanding recommendation of the Kindersley Review Body have been concluded.
