HC Deb 21 October 1986 vol 102 c860W
26. Mr. Willie W. Hamilton

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will make a statement on the proposed salary increases for general managers within the National Health Service.

Mr. Newton

As has already been announced, general managers in the National Health Service are to receive pay increases averaging 5.9 per cent. from 1 September 1986. This followed a review of the general managers' pay rates in the light of general pay movements in the National Health Service, and the increases are in line with those movements. Authorities in the National Health Service have been informed.
