HC Deb 24 May 1974 vol 874 c328W
Mr. Madden

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if she will make the necessary arrangements to enable nurses, while on patient escort duty, to claim expenses incurred.

Dr. Owen

Nurses escorting in-patients are normally regarded as being on duty and are entitled to claim their travelling and subsistence expenses at the rates set out in the relevant Whitley Council agreements.
