Among the resolutions may be found:


The Executive Committee, believing that the facilities given to national Societies for the post-graduate training of nurses in London are of the highest value, and recognizing that after 1932 no provision for the expenses of these nursing courses can be made within the budget of the League,

authorizes the Secretary General to remind national Societies forthwith of the decision of the Board of Governors and to explain to them that unless the necessary funds are secured before the end of 1931 the League will be obliged to close these courses in July 1932”.

In a separate note, one may read:
