§ MR. MOON (St. Pancras, N.)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India whether any English nurses have been engaged for the hospital at Aden; and 951 whether the Government of India or the Admiralty will pay their salaries?
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR INDIA
I am not aware whether any English nurses have yet been engaged for the Aden Hospital, but I am in communication with the Government of India on this subject; as also regarding the proportion of their salaries to be paid by the Admiralty and Port Funds respectively. The latter point to a large extent regulates the class of nurses to be engaged.
