HC Deb 29 July 1914 vol 65 cc1334-5W

asked the President of the Board of Trade how many nurses seeking employment have registered their names at the Labour Exchanges; and how many have been found employment?


The total number of women registered at Labour Exchanges as nurses' during the five months ended June 12th, 1914, was 799. The number of vacancies for nurses notified during the same period was 415, and the number of such vacancies filled by the Exchanges was 204. The Department is not able, without excessive labour, to give statistics for the whole period during which the Exchanges have been in operation.
