§ 51. Mr. Liddall
asked the Minister of Health whether he will consult with the medical authorities, with a view to establishing two grades of State-registered nurses, as the present examination tests for nurses are not consonant with actualities and national requirements, and prevent many suitable persons from giving valuable service to the sick, and are there fore contrary to the interests of the public should an emergency arise?
§ The Minister of Health (Mr. Elliot)
This is one of the matters under consideration in connection with the interim report of the Inter-Departmental Committee on Nursing Services, which was recently published.
§ Sir Joseph Lamb
When is my right hon. Friend likely to take action on the matter, because this delay is causing great irritation?
