HC Deb 29 April 1873 vol 215 cc1137-8

asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether, the Militia Surgeons by the recent regulations having lost the principal part of their pay and allowances, any general rule has been laid down for compensating them, or will each individual case be considered upon its own merits?


in reply, said, it was true that under the operation of recent regulations Militia surgeons might, in some cases, find their emoluments diminished. No rule however had been laid down which recognized a right on their part to compensation, nor had any promise been given beyond this—that if any claim were preferred for compensation, it would receive due consideration.
