HC Deb 05 May 1892 vol 4 cc167-8
DR. TANNER (Cork Co., Mid)

I beg to ask the Financial Secretary, War Department, whether any steps will be taken to remove the disability under which officers in the Army Medical Department suffer as regards precedence at mess; and whether such disability was always in existence, and when instituted?


The officers of the Army Medical Department suffer from no disability.


Has the long correspondence which has taken place on the subject in some medical journals been brought to the attention of the hon. Gentleman, and is he prepared to say that this grievance does not exist?


I have not seen the correspondence referred to by the hon. Member.
