§ 71. Mr. HORE-BELISHA
asked the Minister of Health whether, seeing that the services of, approximately, 2,000 women are available on boards of guardians and on county and county borough councils in England and Wales, respectively, he will consider in the scheme of Poor Law reform making such definite provision as will ensure the retention of the services of an adequate number of duly elected experienced women?
§ Sir K. WOOD
My right hon. Friend appreciates fully the importance of retaining the Services of women in connection especially with the administration of the Poor Law, and the matter will be borne in mind in the scheme of Poor Law reform.
