HC Deb 11 June 1998 vol 313 c675W
Mr. Edwards

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what functions are ascribed to the Welsh 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 receives funding in respect of these functions.[45949]

Mr. Win Griffiths

The Board is required to provide training for teachers and those intending to become teachers of nurses, midwives and health visitors and also to provide information to the public about careers in the professions of nursing, midwifery and health visiting in Wales (SI 1993/614).

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.
