HC Deb 05 July 1926 vol 197 cc1620-1
67. Mr. PENNY

asked the Minister of Health the name and qualifications of the medical officer appointed by his Department to inquire into the administration of the Kingston Nursing Association; and whether any previous investigations have been carried out in regard to the association?


The officer in question is a member of the medical staff of the Ministry of Health, but my right hon. Friend does not think any useful purpose would be served by giving the officer's name. For the decisions based en the investigation of this officer, however, I may refer my hon. Friend to the Minister's letter to the chairman of the association—published this morning—of which I am sending him a copy. The maternity home belonging to the association had been inspected on two previous occasions by medical officers of my right hon. Friend's Department in 1921 and 1925.
