§ 87. Mr. MacVEAGH
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Munitions whether, in view of the fact that Miss Wade Thompson was not allowed to resume work for a fortnight at Woolwich Arsenal on the ground that she had not presented a certificate from a registered medical practitioner, he will state the name of the registered medical practitioner, if any, on whose certificate she was eventually reinstated; and, if she was eventually reinstated without any such certificate, whether she will now be reimbursed for the two weeks' salary, seeing that it is well known that she was absent through illness?
§ Sir W. EVANS
Out of consideration for Miss Thompson, the rule requiring 2062 a medical certificate before returning to work was not enforced, and she was treated as if she were absent with leave. If she desires her case to be considered as one of absence from illness, she must comply with the rule and present a medical certificate in the manner required.
§ Mr. MacVEAGH
Is the hon. Baronet aware that a Member of the present Administration committed the same crime that this girl did, namely, that he went to Mr. Barker and got cured, and will he be dismissed from his job?
