§ Mr. Phillip Oppenheim
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what has been the change in the numbers of doctors, nurses and midwives in (a) Amber Valley and (b) Derbyshire between 1979 and 1985.
§ Mr. Hayhoe
[pursuant to his reply, 19 December 1985, c. 322–23]: I regret that there is an error in my reply to the hon. Member.
Note 3 to the table should read:
(3) In 1980 the working week for nursing and midwifery staff was reduced from 40 hours to 37½. Part of the increase in nursing and midwifery staff is directly attributable to this change.
