§ DR. TANNER
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Admiralty whether any, and if so what, system is pursued with regard to the audit of all Naval Hospital diet sheets?
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE ADMIRALTY
The various diet sheets are compiled by the Medical Officers of wards, who enter personally on them, daily, the diets they have ordered. These sheets are examined in the office of the principal Medical Officer in charge of the hospital, who certifies on the quarterly provision account that this has been done. The audit of the hospital accounts, which includes that of diet sheets, has been conducted for some time past by the Controller and Auditor General.
