§ 66. Mr. ASHLEY
asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether all men at the time they join second-line Territorial units are medically examined to ascertain if they are fit for military service?
§ Mr. TENNANT
All men are medically examined on enlistment, and also as soon as possible after joining their units.
§ Mr. ASHLEY
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that in a considerable number of these second-line units there is a number of men perfectly unfit and of no earthly use for military service? It is a matter of common knowledge. Will the right hon. Gentleman have another medical examination made in order to save the country enormous expense?
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that an order was recently issued that medical officers attached to these units are not to examine men when they join?
