§ 24. Mr. George Craddock
asked the Secretary of State for War the number of soldiers below the age of 25 years serving with the Army in Western Germany who have received hospital treatment for varicose veins during the twelve months ended 8th October, 1955.
§ Mr. Craddock
Does the right hon. Gentleman not think that this is a large number of young men? I discovered in hospital in Germany many of these young men in the same ward who were receiving operative treatment for varicose veins, and some were in their teens? Is this associated with the rigorous military training they are getting?
