§ 5. Mr. LYNN
asked the Secretary of State for War whether women doctors employed by the War Office who are graded and rank for purposes of pay, and perform the duties of officers, have been refused commissioned rank and permission to wear badges of rank; and whether he proposes to take any steps to carry out the promise of the Prime Minister to remove all existing inequalities in the present law as between men and women?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply which I gave yesterday to a similar question put by my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Islington (East), to the effect that it is not proposed to introduce legislation on this point during the present Session.
