HC Deb 23 June 1938 vol 337 c1264
73. Mr. F. O. Roberts

asked the Minister of Health when any report from the committee dealing with the nursing service will be ready for presentation?

Mr. Elliot

I understand that this committee are still engaged in the hearing of evidence and I am not able to say when they will be in a position to issue a report.

Mr. Roberts

In view of the urgency of the matter and the view which has been expressed in all quarters of the House that a Bill should have been introduced some time ago, can the Minister not do something to speed up the presentation of this report?

Mr. Elliot

I am afraid it would be injudicious of me to say that I would attempt to hustle this committee which is engaged in such an important task.
