HC Deb 15 April 1948 vol 449 cc1157-8
65. Colonel Stoddart-Scott

asked the Minister of Health, when he invited the medical and dental schools to consider the recommendations of the Goodenough and Teviot Committees, if he asked them to make recommendations; and when does he expect to receive their Report.

Mr. Bevan

I will send the hon. Member copies of statements made in this, House by my predecessor and myself on, 18th January, 1945, and 11th October, 1946, respectively. There is no question, of my receiving reports from the medical and dental schools.

Colonel Stoddart-Scott

Surely the Minister is aware that the Goodenough Committee published their report some years ago; is he doing nothing whatever to take steps to produce more doctors and dentists in the near future?

Mr. Bevan

If the hon. Member will examine the facts, he will see that a very great deal has been done in carrying out the recommendations of the Goodenough Report.
