HC Deb 02 February 1939 vol 343 c399W
Mr. Gallacher

asked the Paymaster-General, as representing the Lord President of the Council, whether he will consider legislation for the supersession of the General Medical Council and its replacement by a new body possessing the same powers but containing at least one-half of directly elected medical practitioners and with an age limit for its members of 65 years; and whether he will take the requisite steps to set up a committee representative of all interests to consider and report upon the necessary steps to be taken to this end?

Earl Winterton

Certain representations with regard to the General Medical Council have recently been made and are at present under consideration, but I am not yet able to make any statement on the subject?
