§ Mr. JODRELL
asked the Secretary of State for War if there are any British nurses in the port and town of Archangel; and, if so, how many, and when did they arrive?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
There are at present no British women nurses in the port and town of Archangel. A matron and thirteen sisters were, however, on duty on a hospital ship which was stationed at Archangel from 2nd November till the 2nd June last, when the ship returned with them to this country. The hospital ship returned to Archangel on the 7th July with one matron and ten sisters and left again on the 28th, with the nursing staff on board. As I explained yesterday, two hospital ships are being used to evacuate patients from the military hospitals in North Russia.
