HC Deb 06 March 1896 vol 38 c351
MAJOR DALBIAC (Camberwell, N.)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War what proportion of men now serving with the regiments of the First Army Corps are medically unfit to proceed on active service; and when the men of the First class Army Reserve were last medically examined as to their fitness for active service?


Unless every man in the Army Corps were medically examined it would not be practicable to say how many are unfit for active service. Men of the First-class Army Reserve who served in the experimental mobilization last year were medically examined and over 94 per cent. found fit.
