HC Deb 07 August 1905 vol 151 c373
DR. THOMPSON (Monaghan, N.)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War what steps have been taken to form a reserve of officers to the Royal Army Medical Corps.


The question, of whether it may be possible to form a reserve has been under consideration, but no decision has yet been arrived at.


Have not the Advisory Board strongly recommended it?


Yes, Sir. There is general agreement as to the desirability of forming a reserve, but both at the Admiralty and the War Office difficulties have been found from a professional point of view in carrying out the suggestion.
