Many troubles and rows arise there over various matters concerning the Unionists, and the Nationalists. Here is the lastest row, Two now hospitals just completed cannot be opened yet, as there are no nurses to fill them. Nurses cannot be obtained in the North of Ireland, and there are thousands in the South, but the Belfast Government will not allow any nurses from the South to work in the North. 32 Advertisements were made in the Northern papers, but no replies. The two hospitals cost over 2 million pounds each.
