asked the Minister of Health whether he has considered the judgment of the Lord Chief Justice and other judges on the King's Bench Division in the recent case of Younghusband v. Luftig; and whether he intends to introduce legislation to clarify and modernise the Medical Acts, 1858 and 1886 and orders made thereunder, especially with regard to medical practitioners with foreign qualifications only.

I am considering the implications of this judgment, but I am unable to give any undertaking as to the introduction of legislation.
