§ Mr. Gourlay
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many consultants were in receipt of a merit award in non-teaching hospitals in Scotland for the years 1970 and 1971.
§ Mr. Gordon Campbell
In 1969 and 1970, the latest years for which figures are available, the numbers were 129 and 140 respectively in hospitals other than those where some undergraduate teaching is given. The figures exclude consultants employed in both teaching and non-teaching hospitals.
