HC Deb 02 August 1965 vol 717 c239W
78. Mr. Pavitt

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many full-time students entered university insitutions for the first time in the faculty of medicine for the years 1958–59 and 1964–65; what is his estimate of the number of places available for 1965–66; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Crosland

In 1960–61 the entry was 2,020. The provisional entry for 1964–65 was 2,382, and a further 40 are expected in October, 1965. The figures for years before 1960–61 were compiled on a different basis and are not considered reliable.
