asked the Minister of Education how many ex-members of the Indian Medical Department underwent the special clinical course in order to take the Conjoint Diploma and thus acquire British registrable qualifications; and how many of these succeeded in taking the diploma.

I have been asked to reply. Grants were made by the Ministry of Education on behalf of the Commonwealth Relations Office, to 29 ex-members of the Indian Medical Department, to enable them to read for the Conjoint Diploma. Twenty-two were sucessful in obtaining the Diploma, 6 of those unsuccessful are now taking the course again without assistance from public funds, and the other is studying, at his own expense, for the Licentiate in Medicine and Surgery of the Society of Apothecaries.
