HC Deb 13 July 1970 vol 803 c127W
Mr. Sillars

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what steps are taken by hospital authorities to replace senior registrars when the latter are on study-leave.

Mr. Alison

The arrangements in any particular instance depend on the length of the leave and the requirements of the service but it is usual either for a colleague to deputise or a locum to be engaged.
