§ Sir Anthony Grant
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what information he has as to how many registered National Health Service medical practitioners have been (a) suspended, (b) struck off the register and (c) restored to the register in each of the years since the coming into force of the Medical Act 1978, and if he will express these figures as a percentage of the number of registered National Health Service registered practitioners in each year.
§ Mr. Hayhoe
The Medical Act 1978 came into operation on 1 August 1980. Data supplied by the General Medical Council do not readily distinguish between doctors in National Health Service and in other practice. Readily available figures are in the following table.
