HC Deb 18 July 1946 vol 425 cc252-3W
73. Sir H. Morris-Jones

asked the Minister of Health on what date the Temporary Registration Scheme for alien medical practitioners expires; and what is the policy of His Majesty's Government in regard to these doctors, particularly those of Allied nations.

Mr. Bevan

Under the Emergency Laws (Transitional Provisions) Act, 1946, the scheme expires on 31st December, 1947, unless the relevant Defence Regulation is revoked earlier by Order in Council. Future arrangements are under consideration and it is not yet possible to make a statement on the subject.
