HC Deb 06 April 1897 vol 48 c607

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether he will consider the advisability of carrying out the recommendation of the Committee of the Royal College of Physicians contained in their Report forwarded to the Secretary of State for India on the 29th March, that Medical Officers of the Army should give elementary reading room lectures on the preservation of health to young soldiers; and whether these lectures could especially be given before or during their voyage to India?


The recommendation that Medical Officers of the Army should give lectures to young soldiers on the preservation, of their health is one to which great importance is attached, and the question of the time and manner in which such advice can be given is under consideration.
