§ 72. Sir C. KINLOCH-COOKE
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will appoint a medical court of appeal to consider appeals from medical boards, in view of the number of men who have been passed by these boards who are proving unfit for the service they are called upon to give; and whether he will state the 27 number of men belonging to the City of London Territorial regiments who, during the last three months, after being passed as fit by the medical boards have been returned as unfit for training after joining their units?
§ Mr. FORSTER
This proposal has been carefully considered on several occasions, but it is not considered desirable. It is not possible to state the number of men asked for in the last part of the question.
§ Sir C. KINLOCH-COOKE
Will the hon. Gentleman give the approximate number? Would he be astonished to know that there are several hundreds?
