HC Deb 22 November 1977 vol 939 c652W
26. Mrs. Knight

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what steps he is taking to improve the supply of anaesthetists in the National Health Service.

Mr. Moyle

Over the past three years my Department has given approval to the establishment of 123 additional registrar posts and 41 additional senior registrar posts in anaesthetics. This has led to a substantial increase in the number of anaesthetists in training.
