HC Deb 22 December 1916 vol 88 c1820
41. Mr. WATT

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether there are in this country hospital units who have undergone a long period of training and yet are not utilised when there is a demand from France and other fronts for men so qualified; and will he say why volunteers are asked for in the various military hospitals, when there are completely trained units quite ready for sending abroad, in view of the fact that such volunteers are got only with the greatest difficulty?


As all the Forces overseas have been fully supplied with medical units, there is at the moment only occasion to send individuals as reinforcements.
