HC Deb 25 April 1884 vol 287 c653

asked the Secretary of State for War, If he will consider whether the officers and men in each regiment of the Army might be systematically instructed in ambulance drill, and how to treat sick and wounded in the absence of medical assistance; and, if he is aware that ambulance classes are attached to many of our volunteer corps, police force, and also many manufacturing establishments?


In consequence of the continued indisposition of the Secretary of State for War, perhaps I may be allowed to reply for him that a General Order is about to be issued, which will, to a great extent, carry out the suggestions contained in he hon. Member's Question.
