HC Deb 17 October 1916 vol 86 c372
78. Major HUNT

asked the Secretary of State for War if he will say why it is that although Mr. H. A. Barker, a well-known specialist on physical disablement and who has admittedly cured many soldiers given up by ordinary surgeons, offered at the beginning of the War to treat rejected recruits without payment, his offer was rejected by the War Office; and whether, in view of the evidence of Mr. Barker's skill, he can see his way to bring about the employment of Mr. Barker for injured soldiers given up by ordinary surgeons?


I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the answer given by the present Secretary for Scotland on the 28th March to the late Sir Arthur Markham.
