§ 2. Mr. FREEMAN
asked the Secretary of State for India whether he is in a position to make any statement with regard to the question of the recognition by the General Medical Council of Indian medical degrees; and whether any settlement has been reached?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for INDIA (Mr. Wedgwood Benn)
The present intention of the Government of India is to establish an all-India Medical Council which will regulate the recognition of medical qualifications in India. I explained the position in regard to this subject on 18th June in reply to my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for South Derbyshire (Major Pole).
Dr. VERNON DAVIES
Will the right hon. Gentleman say how any decision of the Indian Government to consider the formation of an Indian Medical Council can possibly help Indian gentlemen who may desire to practise in this country?
§ Dr. MORRIS-JONES
Has the right hon. Gentleman been in negotiation with the General Medical Council on this matter?
