HC Deb 11 July 1994 vol 246 cc420-1W
Mr. Tracey

To ask the Secretary of State for Health when she will bring forward regulations under the powers provided under section 49 of the National Health Service and Community Care Act 1990 to enable staff to transfer from health authority to local authority employment in connection with care in the community.

Mr. Bowis

The regulations as described will not now be made. This is because they would not have helped secure the outcome envisaged.

A more detailed explanation of the reasons for this decision has been placed in the Library.
