§ Sir W. COLLINS
asked what arrangements have been or will be made for an ambulance service or for regimental medical officers in connection with the Volunteers?
§ Mr. MACPHERSON
The appointment of medical officers to Volunteer battalions has been sanctioned. It has not yet proved possible to proceed with the formation of volunteer field ambulances owing to changes of organisation consequent on the passage of the Volunteer Act. Proposals, however, are now under consideration, and it is hoped that the matter will be settled shortly.
