I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the reply given to the hon. Member for Rugby (Mr. W. Brown) on 10th November.

Will the hon. Lady bear in mind that the nursing profession offers great services to the State and that this Report should be brought out as soon as possible? The matter is a very important one and cannot be left unsettled for an unduly long time.

Yes, and I think that if my hon. and gallant Friend will look at the reply to which I have referred him, he will see that the chairman states that considerable work has been done and that he hopes to be able to report early next year.
