HC Deb 12 May 1915 vol 71 c1634
26. Commander BELLAIRS

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office, in view of the fact that the Admiralty are paying six consultant physicians and surgeons serving on shore in Great Britain at a rate equal to 3.9 times the pay of the highest-salaried surgeon-generals of the Navy, in addition to the earnings of a certain amount of private practice, whether any difficulties have thereby resulted in regard to the distinguished civil surgeons who so patriotically went to France at the ordinary rates of Army pay?


No, Sir, there have been no difficulties with regard to the pay and status of the consulting surgeons and physicians working with the Army in France.
