The Secretary-General is instructed to convey to Dame Alicia Lloyd Still, President of the Florence Nightingale International Foundation, the deep interest with which the League of Red Cross Societies will follow the Foundation’s work in providing nursing facilities for post-graduate nursing education.

The representatives of the League on the Grand Council and on the Committee of Management of the Foundation are instructed to give special attention, when co-operating in working out the policies of the Foundation, to the great benefits which national Red Cross Societies may derive from the facilities provided by the Foundation”.
