HC Deb 24 September 1948 vol 456 cc200-1W
Sir E. Graham-Little

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will inquire into the case, details of which have been submitted to him, of a lady Polish medical practitioner who has obtained his permission to stay permanently in this country and take up employment, has further obtained permission from the General Medical Council for temporary medical registration under the Polish Settlement Act, but who has been refused by him a certificate required by the Council; and if he will rectify this position.

Mr. Ede

This lady was admitted to the United Kingdom for employment as a social worker and has permission to remain until such date as I may specify. The certificate she requires to enable her to apply to the General Medical Council for registration in the medical register under the Medical Practitioners and Pharmacists Act, 1947, is to the effect that she has been permitted to enter or remain in the United Kingdom in circumstances attributable to war or as a follower and dependant of the Polish Forces. I regret that I could not properly issue such a certificate in this case.
