§ 39. Dr. Summerskill
asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that many women students are finding it impossible to obtain a medical education in London; and whether he proposes to take any action in the matter?
§ Mr. E. Brown
Admission of students to university medical schools is now governed by a quota system based on the pre-war admissions and many more students apply than can be accommodated. As I promised my hon. Friend the Member for North Battersea (Mr. Douglas) on 4th June last, this question is under consideration by the Committee appointed by myself and my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Scotland to inquire into the organisation of medical schools.
§ Dr. Summerskill
In view of the fact that the medical schools in London are constituent bodies of the university, is the right hon. Gentleman considering making strong representations to the university on the subject?
