§ Mr. K. Robinson
asked the Minister of Health if he will state the categories of National Health Service staff in respect of whom pay increases have been agreed by Whitley Councils or determined by arbitration, but not yet 45W implemented; if he will indicate in each case the approximate percentage increase and, where this has been announced, the operative date; and which awards still await his approval.
§ Mr. Powell
Whitley Councils have reached agreement on pay increases for medical photographers (approximately 23 per cent.), medical laboratory technicians (14 per cent. upwards), and regional hospital board works staff (4 per cent. upwards). Effect will be given to these increases from 1st April, 1962. No increases have been determined by arbitration.
