HC Deb 28 June 1985 vol 81 c497W
Mr. Kennedy

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how he expects to fund the costs which will be incurred by the Scottish health boards in meeting the pay awards to nurses and midwives during the financial year 1986–87.

Mr. John Mackay

The cost to the health boards in 1986–87 of meeting the 1985 pay awards for NHS staff will be considered when forward provision for the health programme is reviewed in the current survey of public expenditure.
