To ask the Secretary of State for Health if she will publish details of the numbers of NHS and midwifery staff by pay grades withn the groups of senior nursing and midwifery staff, educational staff, clinical nursing and midwifery staff, learners and other staff; if she will list the number of Project 2000 nursing students, in (a) 1989, (b) 1990, (c) 1991 and (d) 1992; and if she will give the percentage change between each year.

[holding answer 23 June 1993]: The information for 1992 is not currently available. The information for 1989–91 will be placed in the Library.The fall in nurse numbers is a result of the continuing transfer of senior nursing staff to the managerial grades and the growing numbers of Project 2000 trainees who are not counted in the manpower figures.
