Mr. ALFRED T. DAVIES
asked the Minister of Pensions what proportion of medical men whose services are used in examining ex-service men have had experience overseas during the War; and whether he will consider the desirability of the employment of a larger number of such medical men in the interests of those so examined from time to time?
§ Major TRYON
Approximately 60 per cent. of the medical officers employed by my Department in the examination of ex-service men have served overseas during the Great War. It is the practice of the Ministry, other things being equal, to give preference to medical men possessing the qualification to which my hon. Friend refers.
