Reintroduce Oxford weighting tax.

There is a government registered petition to get an Oxford Weighting Allowance introduced at the local hospitals.  The cost of living is the highest in the UK compared to average salary (even higher than London).   It is really difficult to recruit and retain nurses due to the national standard government pay scales.  The petition is asking for an Oxford Weighting to be added to salaries like the London Weighting.  If 100,000 signatures are reached this will then be debated in parliament.
