HC Deb 16 July 1976 vol 915 cc291-2W
Mr. Litterick

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will publish in the Official Report figures showing the amount of overtime worked by doctors employed in the hospitals of each of the Birmingham area health authority districts, together with the amounts of money paid in respect of this overtime for each of the last three complete months for which this information is available and for the corresponding period of 1975.

Dr. Owen

I regret that information is not available in the form requested. At 10th May 1976, however, junior hospital doctors and dentists employed by the Birmingham AHA(T) were contracted for a total, in addition to their standard working weeks, of 8,149 Class A and Class B units of medical time per week at a weekly cost of £18,990.
