HC Deb 12 June 1891 vol 354 c279

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether he would be prepared to extend the substantive rank (medical officers) to the surgeons of the Veterinary Staff?

THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR WAR (Mr. E. STANHOPE,) Lincolnshire, Horncastle

Yes, Sir; this will necessarily follow the grant of combatant titles to medical officers.
