HC Deb 15 June 1950 vol 476 c542
36. Mr. E. Fletcher

asked the Minister of Health why, in view of the shortage of nurses, it is necessary to charge an enrolment fee of £3 3s. to duly qualified persons willing to join the roll of assistant nurses.

Mr. Bevan

The enrolment fee prescribed by the Rules of the General Nursing Council is required to meet the expense of maintaining the Assistant Nurses' Roll.
