HC Deb 21 May 1931 vol 252 c2188

asked the Prime Minister whether the Government is prepared to provide facilities for the further stages of the Nursing Profession (Wages and Hours) Bill?

The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Ramsay MacDonald)

I regret that I can hold out no hope of time being found for the discussion of this Bill.


In view of the hard conditions in the nursing profession, and the hopes held out at the conference of the Labour party in 1927, is the right hon. Gentleman prepared to refer this matter to the Ministry of Health with a view to legislation being introduced?

Lieut.-Colonel FREMANTLE

Will the right hon. Gentleman recognise that there is no demand for this Bill among the nursing profession, and that it is a political stunt of the Labour party?
