§ DR. R. FARQUHARSON (Aberdeenshire, W)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether there will be a vacancy shortly in the Director Generalship of the Army Medical Department? And whether it is true, as rumoured, that it is the intention of the War Office not to appoint the senior officer of the Department as successor to Sir William M'Kinnon?
§ MR. BRODRICK
There will in a few months be a vacancy in the post of Director-General of the Army Medical Department. Selection for appointments of this nature is made, subject to the approval of Her Majesty, by the Secretary of State, after considering the recommendation of the Army Board. The name of the officer selected will be shortly made public.
