§ Mr. PENNEFATHER
asked the Undersecretary of State, for War if he is aware that the Deputy-Director of Medical Service for the Eastern Command issued an instruction on the 18th February last to the effect that officers in medical charge of units should examine men joining to see if they required dental treatment, and that under no circumstances must such inspection be carried out by dental officers; and why this instruction was issued?
§ Mr. MACPHERSON
No, Sir; I am not aware of this, but I am making inquiries and will let my hon. Friend know the result in due course.
