I think my hon. Friend must have been so busy on other things that he is not aware of the fact that in April, 1941, we set up a special Nursing. Division in the Ministry, to the great gratification of all. We take every opportunity to impress on the public the importance of nursing. As far as improvement in salaries and conditions is concerned, I have set up a Committee under Lord Rushcliffe, and that Committee' is at this moment reviewing the conditions, salaries and emoluments of the nursing service. Furthermore, nursing is recognised as vital war work by the Minister of Labour and National Service. I think my hon. Friend must have overlooked all this.
