HC Deb 14 March 1901 vol 90 c1551
MR. ARCHDALE (Fermanagh, N.)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether the wives and families of soldiers, embodied militia, or reservists, serving with their corps, are only entitled to free medical attendance when residing within reach of an officer of army medical corps or of civil practitioner engaged at military contract rates; and, if so, will he say who is to pay for medical attendance for those who live outside that distance and are too poor to pay for themselves.


It has been explained to the House before that it is not possible to provide medical attendance for those residing at a distance from military headquarters.
