HC Deb 20 December 1989 vol 164 c339W
Mr. Cartwright

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will now recognise the Professional Association of Nursery Nurses.

Mrs. Virginia Bottomley

NHS management is free to extend local recognition to organisations such as the Professional Associaton of Nursery Nurses when they have a significant level of membership locally. Membership of the staff side of the Nursing and Midwifery Staffs Negotiating Council is for the staff side to determine.
