§ Sir Bernard Braine
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether he will indicate his willingness to concede the right to arbitration if the Pharmaceutical Services Negotiation Committee were to rejoin the Whitley Council.
§ Mr. Moyle
If the Pharmaceutical Services Negotiating Committee were to seek to rejoin the Whitley Council it would clearly be necessary for the two sides to agree a new constitution. Negotiations on the scope and nature of any arbitration arrangements would no doubt take place during such preliminary discussions.
