HC Deb 11 July 1867 vol 188 cc1390-1

said, he would beg to ask the Secretary of State for War, Whether so much of the Army Medical Warrant of the 1st October 1858, as has not been expressly cancelled by the Warrant of the 1st April 1867, is still in force; and, if so, whether it is to be acted upon; and, whether any order has been issued, and by whom, and when, to carry out the recommendations of the Committee of 1866, in relation to Army Medical Officers, and if same can be laid upon the Table of the House?


said, he had already stated that all parts of the Army Medical Warrant of 1st October 1858, which were not specially repealed, were in force and acted upon. The recommendations of the Committee of 1866 consisted of two parts—one financial, and the other relating to discipline. The former had been carried into effect, and he should lay a copy of the Warrant on the table. The latter had been referred to the Horse Guards to deal with it. They had not yet issued their decision; but they had acquiesced in the recommendation to the extent he had stated on a former occasion.
