§ 58. Mr. T. ATHOLL ROBERTSON
asked the Minister of Health if he can see his way to establish a pension scheme for 369 nurses on a contributory basis, with substantial aid from the State, for all nurses that have faithfully and continuously served public bodies, hospitals, and other institutions, and give assistance to the private nurse in a fair and reasonable way?
While my right hon. Friend is in sympathy with the object which the hon. Member has in view, he is advised that the adoption of such a scheme as is suggested would be wholly impracticable.
