HC Deb 29 October 1918 vol 110 c1257
8. Colonel YATE

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War what arrangements have now been made for the relief of time-expired Royal Army Medical Corps officers who have been retained in India since the commencement of the War and have had no opportunity of service at the front?


Twenty-four officers have been sent to India in relief of a similar number time-expired, and two are awaiting passage. Until the relieved officers return home it is impossible to spare further officers for the purpose, as the system involves the loss of the services of the officers for a period of two to three months.

Colonel YATE

How many more officers are there that will have to be relieved?


I cannot very well say offhand. If the hon. and gallant Member will put down a question I will endeavour to give him an answer.
