asked the Minister of Health whether the undertaking to pay voluntary hospitals from 1st April, 1943, a grant, equivalent to half the additional expenditure involved in carrying out the recommendation of the Rushcliffe Report, will apply to any expenditure arising from the adoption of the 96 hour fortnight during the war?

The recommendation of the Committee in regard to a 96 hour fortnight was that it should be brought into national operation as soon as conditions permit. The undertaking which I have given relates to increases arising out of recommendations which the Committee desired should be operative from 1st April, 1943.
