NHS — Regional Pay — Support for Employers and Unions Working Together — Evidence Based Change — 7 Nov 2012 at 16:00

George Osborne MP, Tatton did not vote.

The majority of MPs voted to support NHS employers and and unions working together for the benefit of patients and staff and in favour of no change to NHS pay arrangements without strong evidence and a rational case for proceeding.

The approved motion moved by Jeremy Hunt MP (South West Surrey, Conservative)[1] read:

  • That this House:
  • notes that the Agenda for Change pay system, introduced by the previous administration in 2004, already includes regional flexibilities, including high cost area supplements and recruitment and retention premiums;
  • further notes that the previous administration also introduced local pay variation in the courts services;
  • recognises that the previous administration established foundation trusts and in so doing removed the power of the Secretary of State to issue directions to trusts over matters of pay;
  • accepts that the rt. Hon Member for Leigh had the opportunity to change this through legislation when he was Secretary of State but chose not to;
  • looks forward to the publication of the NHS Pay Review Body report on the case for further reform to the pay system;
  • supports the view expressed by the Chief Secretary to the Treasury at the GMB union conference that there will be no change unless there is strong evidence and a rational case for proceeding; and
  • calls on the Government to continue to support employers and trade unions to work together for the benefit of patients and staff.”
