HC Deb 12 April 1878 vol 239 cc1228-9

asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether he has yet received the Report of the Committee appointed to inquire into the dearth of Medical Officers for the Army, and the causes which prevent the service being attractive to the Profession; and, if he will state the names of the Members of the Committee?


Sir, the Committee in question is appointed to make an exhaustive inquiry. They are collecting evidence from the various medical schools and other sources, and they can scarcely report for some weeks. The Members are—Mr. Thompson, As sistant Under Secretary of State; Sir William Muir, Director General Army Medical Department; and Mr. Robinson, the Actuary of the Department.
