§ 33. Sir C. KINLOCH-COOKE
asked the Under-Secretary for War whether he is aware that, although the contracts between the War Office and dental officers and the War Office and medical officers are to a very large extent identical, dentists do not draw ration allowance, consequently dental officers have to pay a higher rate for messing than is paid by medical and other officers; and can he see his way to place dental officers in respect to ration allowance on the same footing as medical and other officers?
§ Mr. FORSTER
The question of giving dental officers ration allowance was further considered, as promised in my reply to my hon. Friend's question of 7th March last, and it was decided that no alteration in the terms of the contract was necessary.
§ Sir C. KINLOCH-COOKE
Is it not a fact that the duties of the medical officers and the dental officers are practically identical?
