Mr. Martin Mr. Martin
Minister for Health and Children (Mr. Martin): Officials from my Department have met with representatives of this association to discuss the future development of the profession. However, as the creation of new grades or grading structures within the health service is in the first instance a matter for health service managers, the association has been advised to contact the Health Service Employers Agency in order that the issue might be examined further.
