HC Deb 06 April 1943 vol 388 c510W
Mr. Hannah

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland when it is proposed to introduce a Nurses Bill for Scotland?

Mr. Johnston

The main purpose of such a Bill would be to establish a roll of assistant nurses, a proposal which the Alness Committee reported against in 1938, but in view of the altered conditions since that date I am having discussions with the Scottish nursing and other organisations concerned and hope to make a statement shortly.
