§ 57. Sir R. THOMAS
asked the Minister of Health what is the number of schools of medicine in London and the rest of the country, respectively, from which women are excluded; and whether, in view of the increasing need of women with medical knowledge, he will set up an Inquiry with a view to removing these restrictions?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of HEALTH (Sir Kingsley Wood)
My right hon. Friend has no official information on this matter, 2121 but he understands the position outside London to be that there is no restriction on the admission of women to medical schools. The position in London already forms the subject of an inquiry initiated by the University of London.
§ Sir THOMAS WATTS
Is it not a fact that the medical profession is already overcrowded, and there are many men who cannot find anything to do?
