§ Sir A. Maitland
asked the Minister of Health whether his attention has been drawn to the increasing difficulty experienced by hospitals in securing nurses; and whether he can now give any information which will assist in remedying this matter?
§ Mr. E. Brown
I am well aware of the difficulty experienced by some hospitals in securing nurses, and, as stated in the reply given to a Question by my hon. Friend the Member for Evesham (Mr. De la Bère) on 20th October, proposals I have made for securing a better distribution of certain nurses are now under consideration by representatives of the nurses and of their employers.
