§ Mr. Harvey
asked the Minister of Health whether his attention has been called to the serious redaction in the salaries paid to trained nurses by a number of local authorities since the outbreak of the war; and whether he is taking any action to preserve the standards of the nursing profession?
§ Mr. Elliot
I have received representations to the effect referred to by the hon. Member, though I am not satisfied that the facts are as stated. I am making further inquiries into the matter, but the hon. Member will appreciate that it is not one in which I have any power to give directions to local authorities.
