HC Deb 13 December 1965 vol 722 cc213-4W
Mr. Lomas

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will give the number of students admitted to medical schools in each year from 1951 to the latest available date.

Mr. Prentice

The numbers entering the first pre-clinical year in each year since 1960–61 are shown below. No comparable and reliable series of figures of entry to medical schools is available for the earlier years.

Academic Year Number of Students
1960–61 2,020
1961–62 2,103
1962–63 2,192
1963–64 2,281
1964–65 2,407
1965–66 2,444

Certain medical schools are exclusively clinical, and the above figures do not include the entry to these Schools.
