HC Deb 02 April 1894 vol 22 cc1111-2
CAPTAIN NORTON (Newington, W.)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War what are the duties performed at the Medical Division of the War Office by the officer designated the "Professional Assistant" to the Director General?


The Professional Assistant to the Director General of the Army Medical Department is his deputy in all matters, acting for him in his absence and assisting him generally when present. He is likewise the permanent President of the Medical Board at headquarters.
