HC Deb 17 May 1916 vol 82 c1518
33. Captain DOUGLAS HALL

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether, in view of the fact that it is now proposed to give commissions and grant military rank to officers of Volunteer corps, the War Office is prepared to grant similar privileges to medical officers in charge of voluntary military hospitals?


Commissions have already been given to all medical men doing work which renders military rank necessary. It is not proposed to recommend any further extension of the granting of temporary commissions in the Royal Army Medical Corps except under this principle.
