HC Deb 08 November 1999 vol 337 cc435-6W
Dr. Harris

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment what guidance Her Majesty's Government have given to universities which employ nurses on the relationship between pay awards for nurses employed by universities and those employed by the NHS; and if he will make a statement. [97671]

Mr. Wicks

Neither my Department nor the Higher Education Funding Council for England has issued guidance to higher education institutions on the pay of nurses. The terms and conditions of nurses employed by universities and colleges are matters for them as the employer.
