HC Deb 31 January 1966 vol 723 c151W
Captain Kerby

asked the Minister of Health how many doctors have had their names removed from the register in the last year; and whether, in view of the growing shortage of doctors, he will take steps to restore their names automatically after a period of twelve months.

Mr. K. Robinson

I understand that five doctors' names were removed from the Register in 1965 on disciplinary grounds. Restoration of the names of such doctors is under the Medical Act, 1956, entirely a matter for the Disciplinary Committee of the General Medical Council.
