HC Deb 31 March 1938 vol 333 cc2197-8W
Mr. Kelly

asked the Minister of Health whether his attention has been called to the present unrest about conditions of service amongst the employés in the Ministry of Health; and what steps are being taken to deal with those grievances?

Sir K. Wood

No, Sir. I am not aware of any such unrest. One Staff Association has, however, made representations, from which the remaining Associations representing the great majority of the officers of the Department have expressly dissociated themselves, regarding the supervision of men by women. Suggestions that a new policy has been adopted on this matter are incorrect.
