HC Deb 21 February 1952 vol 496 c401
1. Miss Elaine Burton

asked the Minister of Health if he will make arrangements for motor engines, such as "Cycle-masters" or "Minimotors," to be fitted to the bicycles of district nurses.

The Minister of Health (Mr. Harry Crookshank)

This is entirely a matter for the local authorities.

Miss Burton

Would the right hon. Gentleman use his influence with the local authorities to recommend this, because Coventry district nurses have written to me to say that very hard work is involved in pedalling a push bike along and having a heavy patient to massage and turn over after that effort?
