Alert me about debates like this
asked the Under secretary of State for India how many members of British nursing units in India and Burma are engaged on nursing sick and wounded Indian soldiers at the present time.
The number of nurses of the Queen Alexandra Imperial Military Nursing Service employed, against Indian Military Nursing Service vacancies, and therefore employed in nursing Indian soldiers in Indian and combined British and Indian hospitals, is 389.
In view of the urgency created by the serious shortage of nurses in this country, cannot the Minister return these women to the United Kingdom as soon as suitable Indian substitutes have been found?
I would remind hon. Members that these nurses are being used mostly to nurse men who were wounded in action against our late enemy.
