§ Mr. Tipping
To ask the Secretary of State for Health (1) if she will set out by regional health authority how many nurse clinical grading appeals are pending at a national level; what amount of money these claims involve; what steps are being made to speed the appeal process; and when she estimates this process will be completed;
(2) if she will set out by each health authority region the number of nurse clinical grading appeals still outstanding, the amount of money these claims involve, the steps being made to speed the appeal process and when the region is expected to have dealt with all appeals.
§ Mr. Sackville
The information on the number of appeals outstanding is shown in the table. No estimate of the total sum of arrears of pay due to be paid as a result of grading appeals has been made. Regional health authorities have been asked to clear all outstanding appeals by 31 October 1993.
