§ SIR WALTER FOSTER (, Ilkeston) Derbyshire
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether, seeing that no recruit can be enlisted for the Royal Army Medical Corps if he is over 5 ft. 5 in. in height, however otherwise eligible he may be, this restriction, which prevents enlistment of men otherwise eligible in this branch of the service, can be removed.
§ * MR. WYNDHAM
The maximum standard for the corps is 5 ft. 5 in., but a taller man, who might for special reasons be eligible, would be taken as "specially enlisted."
