HC Deb 01 March 1917 vol 90 c2164W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that a number of soldiers known as "unavailables" are in camp waiting to be examined by a travelling medical board in order to ascertain whether they should be returned to civil life; whether these men have in many cases to wait a long time before the medical board visits the camp; whether many of the men could do useful civil work; and, if so, whether he will expedite the arrangements for having them examined?


I am afraid I cannot answer this question in the absence of further detail, but if my hon. Friend will give me the necessary particulars, I will have inquiry made.
