I beg to ask the First Lord of the Admiralty what action he has taken, or intends to take, with reference to the recommendations contained in the Report of the Committee appointed to inquire into the pay, status, and conditions of service of the medical officers of the Army and Navy, which was laid upon the Table of the House in August, 1889?
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE ADMIRALTY (Lord G. HAMILTON, Middlesex, Ealing)
The Admiralty have had under their consideration the recommendations, three in number, relating to the Naval Medical Service, which are contained in the Report referred to by the hon. Member, and they are in communication with the Treasury on the subject. The third recommendation, relating to Yarmouth Hospital, involves an important administrative question, which has already occupied the serious attention of the Board of Admiralty. Owing to the peculiar difficulties of the case no satisfactory solution has yet been found.
