§ MR. WASON (Clackmannan and Kinross)
On behalf of the hon. Member for West Aberdeenshire, I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War, whether he can inform the House when the last examination took place for commissions in the Royal Army Medical Corps, how many vacancies there were, and how many candidates competed for them; and, whether, to encourage the flow of candidates from the medical schools, he will quickly produce the Royal Warrant founded on the recommendation of his Committee.
§ MR. BRODRICK
The last examination was in February, 1901, when twenty-two appointments were offered, and ten candidates competed. The Royal Warrant will shortly be published.
