§ Sir A. GEDDES
I regret that I cannot state how many male medical students under twenty-eight years of age there are in the United Kingdom. There are, however, at present 5,380 male medical students and 2,250 female medical students at work in the schools and hospitals. The male students freshly registered in 1917 numbered 1,378, as against 1,366 in 1914. Administrative arrangements providing for the safeguarding of the supply of male doctors for the next five years are in force, and there does not appear to be any ground for anxiety.
