HC Deb 23 October 1972 vol 843 c189W
Mr. Marks

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services (1) if the qualifications of State registered and State enrolled nurses will be acceptable for nursing service in the enlarged European Community;

(2) which nursing qualifications obtainable in the enlarged European Community will be regarded as equivalent to the State registered and State enrolled qualifications for service under the National Health Service.

Sir K. Joseph

Directives on mutual recognition of general nursing qualifications are still in draft and have yet to be discussed with acceding States. It is not possible to give the information requested until discussions have taken place and the drafts been finalised.
