HC Deb 22 February 1965 vol 707 c19W
81. Sir M. Stoddart-Scott

asked the Minister of Health whether he is satisfied with the number of students being trained as pharmacists; what is the shortage of pharmacists in the Health Service; and when he expects to have sufficient.

Mr. K. Robinson

The current level of student entry, if maintained, appears to be sufficient to meet the probable requirements of the National Health Service as a whole; as regards hospital pharmacists, I have nothing to add to my reply to the hon. Member for Oswestry (Mr. Biffen) on 1st February.
