Veterinary Education in Great Britain


    IT was stated in the House of Commons on April 1 that the Government welcomes, in principle, the recommendations made by the Loveday Committee on Veterinary Education in Great Britain and by the Chancellor Committee on Veterinary Practice by Unregistered Persons, and it is intended as soon as practicable to introduce legislation to authorize a university to confer degrees which shall entitle the holders to registration with the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons as veterinary surgeons. The Council of the College will also be reconstituted. The Loveday Committee also recommended greatly improved veterinary educational facilities, involving considerable capital expenditure and additional annual expenditure. The Government will be prepared to provide substantially increased financial assistance to veterinary education.
