§ 20. Sir C. KINLOCH-COOKE
asked the Under-Secretary for War whether he is aware that a number of beds in our military hospitals are occupied by men who in the case of a civil hospital would be regarded as outside patients; and will he consider the advisability, in view of the demand on the beds in military hospitals and on the time of the doctors, of dealing with minor ailments among men in the Army in a different way to the existing system?
§ Mr. MACPHERSON
I can assure my hon. Friend that the importance of diminishing by any legitimate method the demand on the beds in military hospitals is fully realised.
§ Sir C. KINLOCH-COOKE
Is the hon. Gentleman aware that this is not my own view, but the view of medical men?
