Nurses Registration Bill, 1948—First Stage.

Leave granted to introduce a Bill entitled an Act to extend the current term of office of members of the General Nursing Council.

When is it proposed to take the next stage?

I should like it as soon as possible. I should like the indulgence of the House in allowing me to take all the stages on the date fixed for the Second Reading, say, next Wednesday.

It is unlikely that there will be any difficulty about that.

Second Stage ordered for Wednesday, 1st December, 1948.
