§ Mr. George Rodgers
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services when it is intended to assimilate health education workers into the National Health Service; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Deakins
The intention is to provide former local authority health education technicians with an opportunity of assimilation to National Health Service terms and conditions of service as soon as these can be negotiated by the National 387W Health Service Whitley Council. Meanwhile they retain protected salaries with improvements negotiated for local authority staff.
