HC Deb 10 November 1976 vol 919 c206W
Mr. Marten

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services, in view of the shortage of State-registered chiropodists and consequent hardship imposed on those who need their attention, whether he will allow those who have qualified through the School of Surgical Chiropody to fill the gap as an interim measure.

Mr. Deakins

Employment in the National Health Service is limited to State-registered chiropodists and I have at present no proposals for modifying this requirement.
