§ Mrs. Ewing
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland which hospital trusts in Scotland have carried out staff opinion polls in the past two years; what were the results of each of these opinion polls; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Lord James Douglas-Hamilton
The findings of a 1993 national survey by the NHS management executive in Scotland are set out in "Framework for Action: What Those Who Work Within the NHS in Scotland Think 1993" a copy of which is in the Library. All trusts were asked to review the findings taking account of local circumstances and to develop, implement and report on action plans to tackle those issues identified as requiring action locally. From 1995 onwards the undertaking of such surveys is a matter for individual trusts.
