WOMEN FORM an important element in the new electorate, and are already beginning to take an increasing interest in the administrative activities of local authorities in connection with maternity and child welfare. Medical services should be readily available for all needing them, and not confined, as at present, to insured persons, to persons under the poor law, and to mothers and children under local schemes and to children of school age under educational authorities. In other words, every person should have the right to command the best medical services throughout his or her life, including expert and consultative facilities, institutional treatment, and, of course nursing advantages.
