HC Deb 12 July 1988 vol 137 c170W
130. Mr. Sims

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Services what representations he has received from the Society of Perfusionists with regard to the status and grading of the profession; if he will agree to meet a deputation from the society; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Newton

My right hon. Friend recently declined an invitation from a sub-committee of the Society of Perfusionists of Great Britain and Ireland to discuss with them the pay and conditions of service of perfusionists. Negotiations on pay and conditions are matters for the Professional and Technical Staffs B Whitley council.
