HC Deb 20 December 1916 vol 88 cc1431-2
53. Mr. WATT

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether a Return was asked in June or July last from field ambulances of how many men in these were qualified as dental mechanics, with the view of transferring these to the Dental Corps; if so, will he say why the men so returned have not been transferred; and when it is proposed to do so?


A Return of dental mechanics serving in combatant corps who were willing to transfer to the Royal Army Medical Corps was called for last summer. Requirements have been fully met by the transfer of men selected from those who volunteered.
