HC Deb 23 July 1975 vol 896 cc251-2W
Mr. Thompson

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what plans he has to increase the intake of students into the Scottish medical schools over the next five years.

Mr. Mulley

The planned annual intake of pre-clinical medical students at Aberdeen will increase from 135 to 150 within the next two years and that at Edinburgh will increase from 155 to 200 in 1979. Scottish universities will then have 755 of the 4,100 pre-clinical entry places planned for Great Britain in 1979
