asked the Secretary of State for Scotland the cost of his proposal to have a model of a nurse placed in the window of a shop in Princes Street, Edinburgh, in the hope of attracting recruits.

The model is part of a small travelling exhibit which cost £260. It was designed to attract recruits to the National Hospital Service Reserve and will be used in towns throughout Scotland over the next two or three years. The window space for the September display in Princes Street, and other space inside the store, have very kindly been made available free of charge by the management concerned. The only additional expenditure will be a small amount for subsistence expenses to the volunteers manning the exhibit.
