HC Deb 05 August 1919 vol 119 c193W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that in the Royal Army Medical Corps many men who are over thirty-seven years of age and who had joined in 1915 are being retained; whether he is aware that in the 43rd General Hospital in Macedonia alone there are over sixty men who had joined in 1915; whether he is aware that the inspection of the register is not being properly carried out; and what steps he proposes to take generally, and especially in Macedonia, to see that this state of things is immediately remedied?


All men, except those in India and Russia, who joined the Colours in 1915, or are over thirty-seven, will have proceeded for demobilisation by the end of August, in accordance with the instructions recently issued. I do not think any special action is called for.
