To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will issue a circular outlining the division of responsibilities between care assistants and nursing staff.

There is no need to issue a circular on the division of responsibility between nurses and care assistants. The duties and responsibilities of the two groups and the training they receive are quite distinct. Skill mix arrangements are best determined locally.
