HC Deb 10 May 1898 vol 57 cc849-50
MR. HAZELL (Leicester)

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether he is aware that a large number of deaths of mothers and infants are annually proved at inquests to be the result of the employment of ignorant and untrained midwives, and that this is the only civilised country in which such entirely untrained and unqualified action is permitted; and whether, under these cir- cumstances, he will give facilities for the discussion on an early day of the Midwives' Registration Bill, now awaiting its Second Reading?


As the honourable Member is quite aware, it is impossible to make exceptions in the case of any particular private Members' Bills.
