HC Deb 11 November 1943 vol 393 cc1274-5
34. Mr. Messer

asked the Minister of Health when the Report of the Rushcliffe Committee dealing with male nurses and nursing orderlies will be issued?

Mr. E. Brown

I have received within the last few days the Second Report of the Nurses' Salaries Committee, which deals, among other things, with the salaries of male nurses employed hospitals other than mental hospitals End in public assistance institutions. I am arranging for the publication of the Report as soon as possible.

Mr. William Brown

Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether, before the Government adopt this Report, we shall have an opportunity of discussing it and not find ourselves committed without a discussion, as we were on the First Report?

Mr. Brown

That does not rest with me, but I will have the Report published as quickly as possible.
