asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware of the feeling among local authorities in Wales at his omission to appoint any representative from Wales upon the National Advisory Council for the Recruitment and Distribution of Nurses and Midwives; whether he is aware of the activities of Welsh authorities in dealing with these questions; and whether he will reconsider his decision and grant to Wales fair representation of experts who have full knowledge and experience of the shortage of nurses, etc., in the principality?

I have had this matter under consideration and have decided to appoint two representatives from Wales. I am in consultation with the various organisations concerned as to the persons to be appointed.
