HC Deb 29 January 1948 vol 446 c188W
128 and 129. Mr. K. Lindsay

asked the Minister of Health (1) what representations have been made by industry to his Department for the registration and inspection of factory nurseries; what recommendations his Department has made with regard to child-minding on more official lines; and whether this is now the policy of his Department;

(2) whether it is the policy of his Department to encourage mothers with children under the age of two to enter employment.

Mr. Bevan

Representations have been made by the Cotton Board. On the hon. Member's other points I would refer him to the joint circular issued by my Department and the Ministry of Education on 14th December, 1945, a copy of which I am sending him.
