§ Mr. Win Griffiths
To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many NHS trusts(a) are already paying nurses a locally negotiated pay award, (b) are negotiating with nurses over a local pay award, (c) have made an offer on which negotiation has yet to begin and (d) have not yet made an offer on which to negotiate locally. 
§ Mr. Malone
The timing and structure of local pay offers is a matter for national health service management. It is for each trust to decide whether to make public the position it has reached.
