HC Deb 20 June 1961 vol 642 cc129-30W
Mr. Mayhew

asked the Minister of Health if he is aware that in the recently published list of merit awards to consultants, 67 per cent. of neurologists received awards, and only 14 per cent. of mental health consultants; and by what criteria these awards are issued.

Mr. Powell

Yes. The awards are made for professional distinction alone, on the advice of the Advisory Committee on Distinction Awards.
