In a paragraph last week advocating the inclusion of some

lay element in the projected Press Council I inferred that there was no such lay element in the General Medical Council (which, by a slip which no one seems to have noticed, I referred to as the British Medical Council). It is pointed out that in fact, the disciplinary committee of the Council does contain two non- medical members. That, of course, strengthens my argument.
