§ Mr. Boyden
asked the Minister of Health how many more psychiatrists will be required during the next three years to meet the needs of the mental health services; how many psychiatrists entered these services during 1961; and how many are in their final year of training now.
§ Mr. Powell
Assessment must await the outcome of the current reviews of medical staffing in hospitals. I will send the hon. Member figures for 1961 as soon as they are available.
