HC Deb 06 April 1939 vol 345 cc3013-4W
Mr. Temple Morris

asked the Minister of Health whether according to his latest reports, sufficient certified midwives have been obtained in all the districts in Wales to work the State maternity scheme; and whether he can give any details?

Mr. Elliot

I am sending my hon. Friend a statement showing the number of domiciliary midwives practising in Wales and their distribution between the areas of the different local supervising authorities. It would appear, on the latest information available to me, that an adequate number of domiciliary midwives has been provided for Wales.
