§ Ms. Harman
To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will estimate the average number of years worked part-time in the National Health Service by nurses after qualification.
§ Mr. Mellor
The answer that I gave to the hon. Member's question on 25 November at column60 included both whole-time and part-time working because individual nurses and midwives move between whole-time and part-time working during their careers. The information cannot be provided separately for whole-time and part-time service.
