§ Mr. MIDDLEMORE
asked whether any steps have been taken to induce medical 848 men to take commissions in the Royal Naval Reserve, with a view to securing their professional services in war time, or whether such a step is in contemplation?
§ Dr. MACNAMARA
We have done a great deal in the direction suggested by the hon. Member. Revised regulations for Medical Officers, Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve, embodying improved conditions of service, have recently been introduced, and have been brought prominently to the notice of medical men throughout the country. The result so far is considered satisfactory.
