HC Deb 19 March 1968 vol 761 cc58-9W
53. Mr. Woodnutt

asked the Minister of Health if he will change the grading of the 25 senior hospital medical officers occupying consultancy posts in psychiatric hospitals in England and Wales to Consultants, in view of the fact that they are occupying consultancy posts.

Mr. K. Robinson

No. As I explained to the hon. Member in my letter of 6th March, every reasonable step was taken to see that all these senior hospital medical officers were given full opportunity to achieve consultant status.
