Mr. Burns

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will make a statement on measures he intends to take to ensure that the registered nursing care contribution bands reflect increases in nursing costs. [162618]

Dr. Ladyman

[holding answer 22 March 2004]The increases to the monetary values for national health service funded nursing care for 2004–05 are already in line with the 3.225 per cent, increase in NHS nurses' and midwives' pay, from April this year.
