HC Deb 05 March 1991 vol 187 cc109-10W
21. Mr. Gill

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what reaction he has received to the recent pay awards to NHS employees.

Mrs. Virginia Bottomley

My right hon. Friend the Prime Minister announced on 31 January that the Government had decided to accept in full the review body recommendations, including those for doctors, dentists, nurses and the professions allied to medicine in the national health service. We have received one letter registering disappointment at the staging of the award.
