§ 57. Mr. William Hamilton
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether, in line with the Government's incomes policy of agreeing to wage increases in the region of 10 per cent. annually, he will advise the increasing of nurses' salaries by that minimum percentage.
§ Mr. Alison
A claim covering salaries, allowances and working hours is currently under negotiation in the Nurses and Midwives Whitley Council and it would not be appropriate for me to comment at this stage.
