§ Mr. Butcher
asked the Minister of Health the weekly value of cash, clothing, food and other allowances received by nurses employed by the London County Council; and whether, in view of the substantial wages paid to female omnibus conductors employed by the London Passenger Transport Board and other women workers, he will take steps to increase the remuneration of the nursing profession?
§ Mr. E. Brown
I understand that the weekly value of cash, clothing, food and other allowances paid by the London County Council to their nursing staffs varies from £3 2s. 3d. for probationers in training, non-resident, to £5 is. 5d. for sisters. As regards the second part of the Question, I would refer the hon. Member to the speech made by my hon. Friend the Parliamentary Secretary in the course of the Debate on 20th March last.
