HC Deb 26 June 1967 vol 749 cc6-7W
31. Mr. Turton

asked the Minister of Health what changes would be required in the constitution and powers of the General Medical Council, the General Dental Council and the General Nursing Council if Great Britain joined the European Economic Committee under the present provisions of the Treaty of Rome.

Mr. K. Robinson

No changes in the constitution of the Councils would appear necessary. Any changes in their powers that may be required to ensure compliance with Community directives would be considered as part of the more general legislation that would be needed should we enter the Community.
