§ Mr. St. John-Stevas
asked the Minister of Health how many British hospitals require applicants for appointments to submit photographs of themselves; and what is the reason for this practice.
§ Mr. K. Robinson
I am not aware of any such requirement by hospitals, but I understand that it is a common practice for overseas applicants to submit a photograph for identification purposes. If the hon. Member wishes me to investigate a particular case, I will do so.
