26. Mr. Welsh

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will make a statement on salary awards for medical practitioners in Scotland.

Mr. Robert Hughes

The pay of doctors taking part in the National Health Service is kept under review by the Review Body on Doctors' and Dentists' Remuneration. The recommendations contained in the supplement to its Fourth Report, which was submitted in December 197[...] have been accepted by the Government. The Review Body is currently considering evidence with a view to making recommendations for increases to take effect from 1st April 1975.
