HC Deb 18 May 1915 vol 71 c2155W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War if he would state the number of medical men in the Civil Service in England and Wales, Ireland, and Scotland, respectively, who have volunteered for service in the present War; the number of them serving; and the treatment of them in regard to Civil Service pay, provision of substitute, and keeping their positions vacant for them?


I am afraid that the information asked for by the hon. Member could only be produced by a process of laborious compilation, and in the present pressure of work I could not undertake to impose the additional burden on the Department. The last part of the question is a matter for the Treasury, which lays down the rules governing such cases.
