HC Deb 24 February 2003 vol 400 c360W
Barbara Follett

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what research his Department has undertaken and commissioned on the appropriateness of a three years out of five rule to assess clinical competence; and if he will make a statement. [94233]

Mr. Hutton

None. The three years out of five years rule is drawn from European Union Directives on recognition of qualifications for all professions which require a relevant qualification.
