HC Deb 17 November 2003 vol 413 cc606-7W
Tim Loughton

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many NHS employees belong to a trade union; and which ones. [134811]

Mr. Hutton

The Department does not hold centrally the number of national health service employees who belong to a trade union.

The Office for National Statistics produces an estimate for the United Kingdom of the proportion of public sector employees with trade union membership, by industry classification, using data from the Labour Force Survey. The figure for health for autumn 2002 is 62 per cent.

Mr. Rosindell

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many staff are employed by the NHS in(a) the London borough of Havering and (b) each NHS trust in London. [137330]
