§ 49. Mr. HUGH LAW
asked the Minister of National Service how many Royal Army Medical Corps officers are now serving as presidents of recruiting medical boards; and will he give the names of such officers and indicate the boards over which they preside?
§ Mr. BECK
There are no Royal Army Medical Corps Regular officers serving as presidents of recruiting medical boards under the Ministry of National Service. There are ten retired officers Royal Army Medical Corps who are employed entirely in a civilian capacity by the Ministry. There are, in addition, eighteen officers who hold commissions in the Royal Army Medical Corps Territorial Force. All these gentlemen have returned to their civilian status.
§ Sir R. ADKINS
Have Territorial or retired Royal Army Medical Corps officers who sit as presidents of these medical boards the same voting power as the other members, or merely a casting vote in the event of the really civilian medical men being equally divided?
