§ Mr. Alfred Morris
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what progress has now been made with the introduction of incentive bonus schemes for building trade operatives in hospital service; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Snow
Five are now in operation. Hospital authorities have decided to start 16 more, and in 13 of these the necessary work study is in progress. Several others are expected to reach this stage by the end of the year but generally the rate of progress depends on the availability of work study staff.
