§ Mr. Galbraith
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland (1) what is the time between an appeal against the physiological measurement technicians, cardiology, regrading and the hearing of that appeal;
(2) how many physiological measurement technicians, cardiology, have appealed against their regrading in (a) Greater Glasgow health board and (b) all other health boards.
§ Mr. Michael Forsyth
Information on appeals lodged with health boards against their implementation of a new pay and grading structure for various groups of technicians and the length of time it has taken to process them is not held centrally and could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
