HC Deb 23 May 1978 vol 950 c549W
Mr. Arthur Latham

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many student nurses from overseas have qualified in the United Kingdom over each of the last five years.

Mr. Deakins

The General Nursing Council for England and Wales advises me that the number of overseas nurses, that is, those who lived overseas until the age of 16 and received their basic education there, who passed the examinations for the register was as follows:

1973 1,334
1974 3,876
1975 3,018
1976 3,251
1977 3,914

Figures were not collected prior to October 1973.
