asked the Secretary of State for Wales (1) whether any priority will be given in appointing preregistration house officers in Wales to Welsh graduates of universities outside Wales; and if he will make a statement;(2) whether any priority will be given in appointing preregistration house officers in Wales to graduates of the Welsh National School of Medicine; and if he will make a statement;(3) whether he will give an assurance that there will be enough preregistration house officer posts in Wales to enable graduates of the University of Wales to obtain full registration; and if he will make a statement.

The responsibility for approving preregistration house officer posts in Wales lies with the Welsh National School of Medicine. Appointments to those posts are made by the health authorities on the advice of the consultants and the WNSM. Funds are provided centrally to meet the likely output of graduates from the Welsh National School of Medicine and to make available training opportunities for, among others, Welsh graduates from outside Wales.
