HC Deb 29 June 1964 vol 697 c144W
62. Dame Patricia Hornsby-Smith

asked the Minister of Health what steps he is taking to assist employing authorities to recruit more midwives.

Mr. Braine

My right hon. Friend has asked non-practising midwives to consider returning to practice if this is possible for them. His appeal has been supported by a short television film and by publicity in the national and regional Press.
