HC Deb 14 August 1916 vol 85 cc1433-4W

asked the Secretary of State for War what provision is made for medical attendance to the workers in munitions factories and industrial establishments in connection therewith; and whether this service is prejudiced by the demands now made upon the Royal Army Medical Corps in connection with the recent heavy casualties on the Continent?


Every effort is made to provide suitable medical and nursing services in munition factories, so far as may be necessary. Special arrangements are made with regard to workers in explosive and filling factories and for those engaged in other dangerous occupations. In connection with these, further steps are at present under consideration. It is obvious that the means for obtaining these services are affected by the demands for medical services on the part of the military and naval authorities and of the civilian population.
