“Item 7: Nursing

Sir John Newman- Morris (Australian Red Cross) asked, with reference to Item 7 a.), whether the League actually trained professional nurses and nurse’s-aids.

Mr de Rougé (Secretary General) explained that the League Secretariat acted as an intermediary between the national Societies which granted study visits to certain nurses who wished to go to another country to improve their knowledge. The League had been carrying on this activity for many years.

The Chairman asked Sir John Newman Morris whether he was satisfied with this explanation.

Sir John Newman Morris (Australian Red Cross) said that the explanation was satisfactory but that the wording of Item 7 a) was not.

It was decided to draft this item more clearly”.
