HC Deb 29 April 1915 vol 71 c834
59. Mr. ALDEN

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he proposes to appoint a Standing Advisory Committee to advise and help in the organisation of special war service for women?


Officers of the Board of Trade are in constant communication with representatives of various women's organisations, which are co-operating in this matter. As at present advised, my right hon. Friend is disposed to think that this method of informal consultation has some advantages over a standing Advisory Committee, but the matter referred to by my hon. Friend is not being lost sight of.
