HC Deb 07 December 1943 vol 395 c755
12. Major Nield

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware of any approach having been made to members of the medical profession now serving in the Army to ascertain their views upon the question of a State medical service; and whether, when the White Paper upon the subject is issued, he will facilitate arrangements whereby their views may be expressed?

Sir J. Grigg

The answer to the first part of the Question is "No, Sir," and to the second part "Yes, Sir."

Major Nield

Will my right hon. Friend implement the second part of his answer by A.C.I. or Army Order?

Sir J. Grigg

I really cannot say offhand. I am not very well acquainted with the precise occasions on which such a method is employed.
