§ 41. Mr Blenkinsop
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what action she proposes to take to end the anomalies in conditions of service of staff now brought under the area health authorities.
§ Mrs. Castle
Differences in terms and conditions of staff rest upon the personal protection of individual terms and conditions afforded to transferred staff under the National Health Service Reorganisation Act 1973. The pace and direction of rationalisation depends very much on future agreements of the Whitley Councils, which are aware of the problems of the staff involved.
