HC Deb 24 June 1881 vol 262 cc1217-8

asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether it is his intention to grant compensation for loss of expectation of pension to those Militia Surgeons who joined previous to Lord Panmure's Circular of 1854; and, whether it is his intention to compensate Militia Surgeons generally for the serious loss of income inflicted on them by recent changes, and in particular by the withdrawal of fees for the examination of recruits?


No, Sir; I can only say that this question was fully considered and finally dealt with by my Predecessor (Viscount Cranbrook) some years ago, and I cannot undertake to re-open it.
