Oral Answers to Questions — British Army. – in the House of Commons on 9th July 1942.
Alert me about debates like this
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will state the present position with regard to the proposal that Voluntary Aid Detachment and Red Cross nurses should become Auxiliary Territorial Service nursing orderlies; and whether he will state the reasons for the change?
This question is under discussion between the War Office and the voluntary organisations concerned. My right hon. Friend hopes shortly to be in a position to make a statement.
Is the hon. Gentleman aware of the very strong feeling throughout the country on this subject, and will he bear that in mind in coming to any decision?
Will my hon. Friend take note of the fact that the uncertainty about the position is having a very disturbing effect, and will he see that a decision is arrived at very soon?
Yes, Sir, discussions are going on at this moment.
