HC Deb 24 October 1918 vol 110 c950W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War if, having regard to the fact that women doctors serving in military hospitals discharge similar duties and receive the same pay as men doctors and are entitled to wear the Royal Army Medical Corps badge, he will take steps to rectify the anomaly of their being refused even honorary commissions or to wear badges of rank which would be helpful to them in maintaining discipline; and if he can arrange that they obtain equivalent relief from Income Tax as is granted to men doctors under the Service rate?


I am reconsidering this question. Perhaps my hon. Friend will be good enough to ask me a question on the subject next week (Wednesday). The last part of the question is one for the Treasury.
