§ 17. Colonel DAY
asked the Minister of Health whether his attention has been called to the difficulty that arises in summoning a public health nurse quickly in cases of emergency, as the majority of nurses are not subscribers to the telephone system; and will he consider installing telephones in the residences of all nurses engaged on this work?
§ The MINISTER of HEALTH (Mr. Chamberlain)
The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. As regards the second part, this is a matter for the consideration of the bodies by whom the nurses are employed.
§ Colonel DAY
Will the right hon. Gentleman make inquiries with regard to the first part of the question? If he does, he will find that the statement there is correct.
