HC Deb 17 March 1958 vol 584 c101W
50. Mrs. Slater

asked the Minister of Health what steps are being taken to recruit health visitors.

Mr. R. Thompson

This is primarily a matter for local health authorities as employers but the Ministry of Health assists by general encouragement of nurse recruitment and by subsidising the cost of training health visitors. Further measures are under consideration in consultation with the local authority associations and professional organisations following on the Report of the Working Party on Health Visiting.
