asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that most medical schools in London refuse to accept women medical students, although many with good educational qualifications are anxious to enter; and whether, in view of the fact that students beginning now will not be medically qualified for several years, he will refuse to reserve any more men to commence the study of medicine in these schools unless they agree to take a reasonable proportion of suitable women?
I am aware that some medical schools in London do not accept women students. Whether such schools should accept them is a question for consideration by the Committee on Medical Schools, of which I understand my hon. Friend is a member. I must, however, take all relevant facts into consideration before I agree to reservation.
