asked the Minister of Labour what progress has been made towards implementing his undertaking to review before April, 1966 the arrangements and publicity necessary to encourage an increase of applicants for scholarships for the Royal College of Nursing occupational health courses.

Mrs. Shirley Williams

The minimum age limit which applied in previous years has been removed; maintenance allowances have been increased by £40 and the usual announcements in theNursing Times, Nursing Mirror and the Occupational Health Journal have been supplemented by two announcements in the British Hospital and Social Service Journal. In addition my Department's Information News-sheet, which has a wide circulation in industry, has included a special article.
