HC Deb 18 February 1964 vol 689 cc1013-4
26. Mr. Boyden

asked the Secretary for Technical Co-operation what progress has been made in implementing the Porritt Report on Medical Aid to the Developing Countries.

Mr. R. Carr

All the recommendations of the Porritt Working Party accepted by the Government are being actively pursued. To give two examples: we shall shortly award the first of the 25 special bursaries for post-graduates from overseas; and arrangements for the 18 lectureships at the London and Liverpool Schools of Tropical Medicine have been completed, and the first two posts filled.

Mr. Boyden

Can the right hon. Gentleman say how many doctors and sister-tutors have been seconded?

Mr. Carr

I require notice of that question.
