The article reports on the results of a survey of British Medical Association members which was concerned with the findings of an inquiry into medical training which was led by John Tooke. The survey found that almost two thirds (64%) of members of the association were against Great Britain's Department of Health's plans to make it more difficult for international doctors to apply for postgraduate training positions in the country which were proposed in an effort to make more positions available for British medical graduates.
