§ 28. Sir PHILIP RICHARDSON
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that, after allowing for Income Tax and the increased cost of living, the pay and pensions of medical officers, and particularly those in India, are smaller in purchasing power than in 1914; whether he is aware that this is the cause of the falling off in the number of entrants to the Royal Army Medical Corps; and whether he proposes to recommend adequate increases?
§ Sir L. WORTHINGTON-EVANS
The falling off in the number of candidates for the Royal Army Medical Corps is due to several causes, with which I could not deal within the limits of a Parliamentary answer. I hope that it will be possible to find a remedy without undue delay.
