HC Deb 29 November 1960 vol 631 cc181-2
11. Dr. Summerskill

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many women students have applied for admission to the London Medical Schools during the last two years; what is the percentage of acceptances; and what are the corresponding figures for male applicants.

Mr. Selwyn Lloyd

This information is not immediately available. Arrangements are being made to collect it and I will write to the right hon. Member later.

Dr. Summerskill

In the event of his discovering that women students are being treated inequitably, will the Chancellor ask the University Grants Committee to withhold grants from those medical schools whose practice is not in line with current educational thought?

Mr. Lloyd

I should like to see the figures first to see whether that hypothesis is justified.
