134. Mr. K. Robinson

asked the Minister of Health the number of retirements of consultants from the hospital service in each of the last five years for which figures are available; and, also, the figures in terms of whole-time equivalents.

Mr. Vaughan-Morgan

The figures for whole-time equivalents asked for are not readily available, and on this I am communicating with the hon. Member.

Following are the figures:

June, 1953 168
June, 1954 162
June, 1955 158
June, 1956 146
June, 1957 144

Separate figures for resignations, retirements and deaths are not available.
