HC Deb 27 November 1952 vol 508 cc85-6W
105. Mr. Turner-Samuels

asked the Minister of Health whether he will make an early statement regarding the registration of duly qualified physiotherapists in this country; what are the statutory or other qualifications to be required by him before such registration is permitted; and whether he will take steps to introduce the necessary legislation to give effect to such registration, and, in the meantime, remove the present discrimination adopted in the employment of physiotherapists by his Department and State hospitals under the National Health Service which favours a particular association without setting up a general test applicable equally to all physiotherapists irrespective of the association to which they may belong.

Mr. Iain Macleod

I hope to be able to make a statement shortly.

Forward to
