HC Deb 15 March 1917 vol 91 c1292W
Sir J. D. REES

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether agoraphobia is included among the diseases which disqualify persons otherwise qualified to serve in the Army; and, if so, how many agoraphobists have been granted exemption by medical boards since the War began?


In only one case, so far as is known, has this disease disqualified a man for service, and the man in question was otherwise of unsound mind, though not certifiable.
