HC Deb 09 July 1913 vol 55 c416

asked the Prime Minister whether his attention has been called to a case in the Police Court taken under the White Slave Act, in which a woman purporting to be a nurse by being dressed in nurse's uniform was concerned; and whether, in view of the growing frequency of this abuse, he will, pending the extension of the franchise to women, take any steps, by legislation or otherwise, to protect the nursing profession in this respect?


The matter is receiving attention, but it presents very serious difficulties, and I cannot at present add anything to the answer given to a question by my hon. Friend on 13th March last.
