asked the Minister of Health how many local authorities make it a condition when advertising medical vacancies, that applicants should be members of their appropriate associations; and as such advertisements are refused by medical journals, if he will take steps, if necessary by legislation, to see that such local authorities are enabled to fill their vacancies with properly-skilled persons.

I do not know how many local authorities have sought to impose this condition but I have sent my hon. Friend a copy of a circular which I have issued to all authorities on this subject.
