Keaton and Smith & Jones being the secondary contributor, that I am satisfied that the greatest part of the earnings paid to, or for the benefit of, The above employees in respect of employed earner's employment by Smith & Jones is normally paid at intervals of greater length than the shortest interval at which any part of such earnings are normally paid or treated as paid.

  • City of Liverpool's Director of Housing and Consumer Services

'In many areas it is unlikely that successful housing renewal programmes can be implemented without increasing the viability of housing association rehabilitation, and in recognising the contribution that housing associations can make particularly in area based programmes, the priority which should be provided when an area is declared should be reflected in an enhancement of housing association funding for rehabilitation.'

  • The Value for Money Unit of the NHS Directorate for a document sent out by the Welsh Office

'[A bed is] a device or arrangement that may be used to permit a patient to lie down when the need to do so is a consequence of the patient's condition rather than a need for active intervention such as examination, diagnostic investigation, manipulative treatment, obstetric delivery or transport.

'Beds, couches, or trolleys are also counted as hospital beds where:

'a) used regularly to permit a patient to lie down rather than for merely examination or transport (e.g. in a day surgery ward.)

'b) used whilst attending for a specific short procedure taking an hour or less such as endoscopy, provided that such devices are used only because of the active intervention and not because of the patient?s condition.

'c) used regularly as a means of support for patients needing a lengthy procedure such as renal dialysis (includes special chairs etc.)

'd) used regularly to allow patients to lie down after sedation.

'NB: A device specifically and solely for the purpose of delivery should not be counted as a bed.'


  • Brian Devine, Regional Secretary of UNISON for a document sent to staff representatives

'In examining the intended profile for the post of Information Officer the RMT has been mindful of the residual posts of Organising Assistant the duties and responsibilities attaching thereto and the range of support now required to both the service group and functional elements of the regional structure. With the exxception of the IT User Support responsibility within the aforementioned profile and the function of the Committee Administration historically embraced the by Organising Assistant remit (both of which would demand specific provision within the administrative resource) it is considered the better option that posts of Organising Assistant (or similar designation) be retained and that an appropriate job title be designed; this to include items (i) - (iv) in the Information Officer profile and the requirement of generic support to the staffing and lay structures established. In these circumstances I am recommending that a post of Information Officer not be determined at this time and that the requisite number of Organising Assistant posts be reviewed.'
