To ask the Secretary of State for Social Services what action he proposes to take about the report from the Royal College of Nursing relating to nurses supplementing their income by taking other employment; and if he will make a statement.

I understand that the Royal College of Nursing, as part of its evidence to the Review Body for Nursing Staff, Midwives, Health Visitors and Professions Allied to Medicine, has commissioned a survey from the Institute of Manpower Studies on, among other things, the number of nurses having a second job. We shall be studying the Royal College of Nursing's survey with the interest as soon as the evidence to the review body is exchanged.
