HC Deb 12 June 1893 vol 13 cc790-1
DR. MACGREGOR (Inverness-shire)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War if he will explain on what grounds the executive officers of the Army Medical Staff, who went out to India during last trooping season, are shown in the official Army List with "India" only opposite their names; whether it has been customary hitherto to give the particular Presidency in which they are doing duty; and whether, in view of the inconvenience thus caused to their friends in not being able to ascertain their station from the official Army List, he will order the old arrangement to be reverted to, having regard to the fact that this was one of the points brought to his notice by the Parliamentary Bills Committee of the British Medical Association (Paragraph VI.) through their deputation on the 15th May?


This is, as my hon. Friend says, one of the points urged by the deputation I recently received on the subject of the alleged grievances of medical officers. It is being examined with the others, and it is not desirable to anticipate the general decision.
