Mr. Wareing

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will list in theOfficial Report those medical schools which are currently recruiting approximately equal numbers of women and men students.

Mr. Jackson

In 1986–87 all medical schools in the United Kingdom, except for the medical schools at Cambridge, Manchester and Dundee universities and the London hospital medical school, recruited between 40 and 60 per cent. of women students. The average proportion of women entrants for all medical schools was 45 per cent. compared with 42 per cent. for all university entrants.
