Mr. Peter Morrison

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many persons qualify as graduate doctors per annum.

Mr. Prentice

The number of students in Great Britain who obtained a first registrable medical qualification increased from 1,805 in 1964–65 to 2,594 in 1973–74, and current plans envisage a further increase to about 3,700 by the middle of the 1980s.
