HC Deb 11 June 1968 vol 766 c17
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.
