§ Mrs. Renée Short
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, pursuant to his reply to the hon. Member for Orpington (Mr. Stanbrook) on 13 November, if he will publish in full the review of Sir Henry Yellowlees into the nature and conduct of medical examinations in the context of immigration control; and if he will state in which areas the report considers further study to be desirable.
§ Mr. Whitelaw
Much of the detailed work of the review was carried out by one of Sir Henry Yellowlees' deputies. In reporting the results of the review to me he submitted his conclusions as my chief medical adviser. I included in full in my reply of 13 November those conclusions covering the matters which led my predecessor to institute the review.
The areas in which Sir Henry Yellowlees advised me that further study was desirable and on which he made no specific recommendations are about quite different matters in the field of public health. I shall arrange for copies of Sir Henry Yellowlees' full report to be made available to hon. Members shortly.
