Oral Answers to Questions — India – in the House of Commons on 20th April 1944.
asked the Secretary of State for India what steps are being taken in India to increase the number of doctors and to raise the standard of medical education.
Future developments are being considered by a committee presided over by Sir Joseph Bhore. Among the many subjects which are engaging its attention are the standards of medical education and the increase of facilities for medical relief in rural areas.
Yes. I believe all possible steps are being taken, including the fuller use of licentiate doctors and an improvement in their standard of training.
Is not a decrease in population more important than an increase in doctors?
