§ 37. Colonel YATE
asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether, considering that many officers of the Royal Army Medical Corps have been detained on garrison duty in India beyond the regulation term of five years, he can now state by what date arrangements will be made to relieve those officers and give them a chance of service in France or elsewhere?
§ Mr. MACPHERSON
I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the answer given on 3rd December last to my hon. and learned Friend the Member for York. Steps are being taken to relieve as ninny as possible of the medical officers who have been a lung time in India, but in view of the transport and otter difficulties, such as the loss of time and services involved in carrying out reliefs. I regret it is quite impossible to give a date in connection with this, or even to promise that all such officers will be relieved.
