§ Dr. D. Johnson
asked the Minister of Health how many doctors were employed whole time in the junior medical grades of registrar and below in the hospital service on 30th September, 1963; how many of these were born outside Great Britain; if he will classify his information by grade, speciality and region to enable direct comparison to be made with the figures for 31st March, 1960, and 30th September, 1961, published by him on 25th January, 1963; if he is aware that regular collection and publication of this information was recommended by the Joint Working Party on Medical Staffing in the Hospital Service; and whether he will ensure that this be done.
§ Mr. Barber
I will send the figures for 1963 to my hon. Friend as soon as they are available. Information about the numbers of doctors employed in the hospital junior medical grades, enabling comparison to be made with previous years, is contained in the Annual Reports of my Department.
