HC Deb 27 April 1976 vol 910 c77W
38. Mr. Steen

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he remains satisfied with the salary differential that exists between school nurses and tuberculosis visitors with the health visitor's certificate and school nurses and tuberculosis visitors without the certificate.

Mr. Deakins

My right hon. Friend the Member for Blackburn (Mrs. Castle), when Secretary of State, stressed that future consideration of these and other salary questions arising from the Report of the Halsbury Committee of Inquiry is for the Nurses and Midwives Whitley Council in the normal course of its negotiations against the background of the general principles recommended by the Committee. The council is currently carrying out job evaluation of the nursing and midwifery structure and expects to have relevant information on the duties carried out by school nurses and TB visitors without the health visitor certificate later this year.
