HC Deb 18 July 1946 vol 425 c252W
71. Mr. Martin Lindsay

asked the Minister of Health what improvement is being made in the staffing of maternity homes in Birmingham and district; and what proposals he has to this end.

Mr. Bevan

The staffing of maternity homes here, as elsewhere, continues to be difficult. The measures to which I referred in reply to the hon. Member on 16th May are being continued, and I have recently announced increases in the salary scales of both wholetime and part-time midwives.
