HC Deb 03 March 1919 vol 113 cc41-2
101. Mr. RAPER

asked the Secretary for War whether, in view of the Government's undertaking to remove all existing inequalities in the present law as between men and women, he will give his sympathetic consideration to support the claim of women doctors serving under or attached to the War Office for recognition of the rank and privileges to which they are entitled?


The general policy of the Government in seeking to remove the existing inequalities between men and women cannot be held to commit them to immediate action in this sense in every sphere, and I am not prepared to introduce legislation during the present Session on the point raised by my hon. Friend.
