HC Deb 09 May 1918 vol 105 cc2330-1
81. Mr. WING

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War if he is aware that numbers of Royal Army Medical Corps men are being transferred to Infantry units, resulting in dissatisfaction owing to the fact that many of them are over forty years of age, and joined the Army because- of their knowledge of ambulance work in civil life; and, in view of the fact that it was understood they were to be retained for that work, whether he proposes to take any action in the matter?


I would refer my hon. Friend to my reply on the 5th February last to my hon. Friend the Member for Blackburn, of which I will send him a copy.

82. Mr. WING

asked if the Royal Army Medical Corps units are all complete or is the Army still accepting recruits?


Recruits are still being accepted for the Royal Army Medical Corps subject to certain limitations as to age and medical fitness.


Is not the reply which has just been given an absolute contradiction to the reply which was given to the hon. Member for Blackburn?


If my hon. Friend will do me the honour of reading the reply to the hon. Member for Blackburn, he will see that there is no contradiction.
