NHS: Maternity Pay

Volume 463: debated on Wednesday 12 September 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Health (1) how many trusts have waived their rights to recovery of maternity pay as set out in part 3, section 15.30 of Agenda for Change: NHS terms and conditions of service handbook, January 2005; (155247)

(2) what studies his Department has carried out into the cost implications of NHS trusts waiving their rights to recovery of maternity pay as set out in part 3, section 15.30 of Agenda for Change: NHS terms and conditions of service handbook, January 2005.

We do not hold information centrally on trusts waiving their right to recovery of maternity pay as set out in part 3, section 15.30 of ‘Agenda for Change: NHS terms and conditions of service handbook, January 2005’ and no studies have been undertaken on this issue.
