Midwives attacked the Government yesterday over low pay and changes in Pay Review Body rules, which they claim had led to a 1.5 per cent award.

They called on their leaders to act to halt the slide in their salaries, during a debate at the Royal College of Midwives' annual conference in Manchester. One delegate, Susan Coates, from Rochdale, said morale was low: 'Pay is important to midwives.' She also urged members to lobby MPs on the issue.
