HC Deb 15 April 1918 vol 105 cc42-3

asked the Undersecretary of State for War why recently 190 men attached to the Royal Army Medical Corps have been transferred to the school of instruction for Infantry at Zemtoun, Cairo, in spite of their protest and in violation of the pledges repeatedly given that such transfers should not take place; and will he take steps immediately to have the men put back in the Royal Army Medical Corps?


I am not aware of the particular transfers referred to in the question, but I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer I gave him on the 5th February last, which deals generally with the transfer of men in the Royal Army Medical Corps to the Infantry. I have no information which would lead me to suppose that the conditions set forth in that reply are being in any way contravened.
