HC Deb 14 December 1983 vol 50 cc512-3W
Mrs. Renée Short

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many National Health Service administrators who retired after each reorganisation carried out by the right hon. Member for Leeds, North-East (Sir K. Joseph) and the right hon. Member for Wanstead and Woodford (Mr. Jenkin) are now still working part-time or full-time in the National Health Service after drawing their redundancy pay; and in which regions they are.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

[pursuant to his reply, 28 November 1983, c. 424]: No information is available on the re-employment of officers retiring following the statutory reorganisation of 1974.

On the general question of re-employment of those prematurely retired following the 1982 reorganisation, I refer the hon. Member to my right hon. Friend's reply to her today.

Of those currently re-employed, 42 are administrators. Forty have been re-employed on a part-time basis, 35 in a more junior grade than they previously held; the remaining seven, including both whole-timers, were already in junior grades. The regional figures are as follows:

Region Whole-time Part-time
Trent 1
East Anglian 2
North West Thames 4
North East Thames 1 2
South East Thames 1 13
South West Thames 3
Wessex 6
Oxford 3
West Midlands 5
North Western 1
