asked the Minister of Health what representations he has received from members of the nursing profession regarding the fees which they are required to pay before 31st October in order to keep their names on the register; and whether he is prepared either to reduce those fees or allow them to be paid in two or more instalments.

I have had letters, either directly or through hon. Members, from about 50 nurses. The fees are prescribed by Rules of the General Nursing Council, after consulting the nurses' organisations, and the Rules have lain before both Houses. I have no power to reduce the fees or to allow them to be paid by instalments.
