HC Deb 10 February 1982 vol 17 c414W
Mr. Hoyle

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will advise health authorities to review and improve security at nurses' homes and improve protection for those working unsocial hours; and if he will make funds available for this purpose.

Mr. Geoffrey Finsberg

I am certain that health authorities are fully conscious of the need to take all reasonable steps to ensure the safety of their employees who live in nurses' homes and work unsocial hours. I am equally certain that they would not be deterred from taking such steps by financial considerations. However, I shall bring this question and reply to the notice of regional personnel officers.
