§ Mr. Galbraith
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will give the percentage change in the salary costs as a result of the change to the medical technical officer grade in those staff administered by the Department of Clinical Physics and Bioengineering, West Graham street, Glasgow; and what are the equivalent figures for those staff in Lothian, Fife, Grampian and Tayside health boards.
§ Mr. Michael Forsyth
The costs of introducing the medical technical officer grade arose from the transfer of staff to a common pay spine and from the assignment of individuals to particular grades within the new structure following local review. These costs are not available centrally and could not be obtained without disproportionate costs.
