HC Deb 19 December 1988 vol 144 c127W
Mr. Kirkwood

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what guidance his Department gives to health authority members asked to consider the grading of a ward sister who meets seven out of 11 criteria laid down to meet consideration for an 'I' grading but who only manages one ward; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

Posts should not be graded at a particular level unless they meet the grading definitions, which have been agreed between management and the trade unions, in full.
