HL Deb 17 July 1995 vol 566 cc4-5WA
Baroness Jeger

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Which hospital trusts have not yet given nurses a pay rise; and whether they will fix an early deadline for settlement.

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Department of Health (Baroness Cumberlege)

Around 80 per cent. of trusts have made offers to their nursing staff. It is now for those staff or their representatives to pick up the offers locally. It is expected that the small number of trusts which have not yet made their offers known will do so shortly.
