HC Deb 08 February 2001 vol 362 c664W
Mr. Pickthall

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will list those hospitals which do not offer permanent posts to enrolled nurses. [148437]

Mr. Denham

This information is not collected centrally but may be held locally by individual National Health Service employers. We have made it clear that the systematic use of short-term contracts for nurses and other staff should end.
