§ 13. Sir WILLIAM H. DAVIES
asked the Under-Secretary of State for War if the Army authorities are prepared to allow reasonable furlough to wounded soldiers who have been in military hospitals for more than six months in cases where such furlough is recommended by the medical officer in charge of the patient?
§ Mr. MACPHERSON
No, Sir; it is not proposed to extend facilities for furlough in hospital, as it is found that furlough generally retards recovery in the case of both officers and men.
§ Sir W. H. DAVIES
Is the tendency to force men out of hospital before they are completely recovered the policy which he is now supporting?
