HC Deb 08 March 1962 vol 655 cc89-90W
58. Mr. Charles A. Howell

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if, having regard to the difficulty many hospitals are having to keep wards open due to the shortage of trained nurses, he will take steps to exempt registered nurses from jury service.

Mr. R. A. Butler

It would not be right to consider the claims of registered nurses in isolation, but they will be borne in mind in any general review of the statutory exemptions from jury service.
