§ Mr. Jim Lester
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will encourage consultants in non-teaching hospitals to take some part in training students in order to improve the number of places available at moderate cost.
§ Mr. Prentice
I understand that some medical schools are now making use of hospital facilities not previously used for teaching as part of their contribution to the expansion of medical education. It is in the first instance for universities together with the area health authorities to consider whether this practice could usefully be extended.
