HC Deb 08 April 1998 vol 310 c370W
Ms Beverley Hughes

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what functions are ascribed to the English National Board for Nursing, Midwifery and Health Visiting under section 6(1)(e) of the Nurses, Midwives and Health Visitors Act 1997; and if the Board received funding in respect of those functions. [38712]

Mr. Milburn

The Board is required to provide a careers service (Statutory Instrument 1993/629). Funding for this is not authorised by statute and is the subject of separate approval by the Treasury until March 1999, after which new arrangements will be introduced.
