HL Deb 09 April 1998 vol 588 c170WA
Lord Thomas of Macclesfield

asked Her Majesty's Government:

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 whether the board receives funding in respect of these functions. [HL1453]

Baroness Jay of Paddington

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.
