§ 23. Mr. Bellenger
asked the Secretary of State for War the number of officers employed in London and throughout the country in work of the Judge Advocate-General's Department who are under the age 35 years and of an A medical category; and what steps he proposes for their replacement by older officers similarly qualified, or of a lower medical category?
§ Captain Margesson
Nineteen officers of the age and medical category in question arc at present serving in the United Kingdom on the military staff of the Judge Advocate-General, and two of these will attain the age of 35 within the next few days. In view of the fact that these appointments carry with them the obligation to proceed overseas at any time, I do not consider that this figure can be regarded as unduly high.
