§ DR. TANNER (Cork Co., Mid)
beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, under the provisions of the recent Medical Law enacted by the French Government, no British medical man will be permitted to practise in France without having. obtained the diploma of Doctor of Medicine in one of the State Faculties, except. when a special dispensation is granted by the Minister of State; and whether French medical men are permitted to practise their profession in England?
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE FOR FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Sir J. FERGUSSON, Manchester, N.E.)
We are not aware in what form the Bill in question has. passed the French Legislature, or if it has passed; but inquiry is being made. French and other foreign medical men are-free to practise their profession in this country, subject to certain disabilities,. unless they are registered under the Medical Act of 1886; but the provisions. of that Act in this respect do not take effect, unless the country to which they belong has conceded reciprocal privileges.
