§ Mr. Dormand
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what measures he is taking to increase the number of physiotherapists in hospitals; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Alison
The number of physiotherapists employed in hospitals in England and Wales has risen by over 11 per cent. in the last 5 years and this trend can be expected to continue, but we are intending to review the position in the light of the Report of the Remedial Professions Committee which is expected later this year.
