HC Deb 12 May 1927 vol 206 c563
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.


Perhaps the hon. Member will give me the information.
