17. Mr. van Stranbenzee
asked the Minister of Health whether he will now make a statement on the Report of the Royal Commission on Medical Education.
§ Mr. K. Robinson
I have nothing yet to add to my reply of 23rd April to my hon. Friend the Member for Willesden. West (Mr. Pavitt).—[Vol. 763, c. 22.]
§ Mr. van Straubenzee
Does not the Minister appreciate, while one understands the necessity for consultation, that, in the interim, the whole system of medical education is in the melting pot, right across the board? Does he not feel that that lends urgency to a decision by him?
§ Mr. Robinson
Yes, Sir, and I can assure the hon. Gentleman that, as my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister promised on 4th April, the Government are now examining the recommendations in the Report most urgently.
