§ Tim Loughton
To ask the Secretary of State for Health how much remuneration an NHS child care co-ordinator will receive. 
§ Mr. Hutton
The remuneration of national health service child care co-ordinators is a matter for local determination. Guidance issued by the Department of Health in 2001 recommended a starting salary in line with General Whitley Council pay scales for administrative and clerical staff (Grade 6/7, Spring Point 24–32). In 2002–03, this equates to £19,592 to £27,887 per annum.
