HC Deb 29 January 1962 vol 652 c62W
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.
