§ Mr. CAIRNS
asked the Minister of Pensions the number of medical officers in the Ministry of Pensions who served in uniform overseas, who served in uniform at home, and those who were never in uniform; are there any medical officers who served in uniform in the northern area who are at present unemployed; and how many who were never in uniform are now employed?
§ Captain CRAIG
The number of whole-time medical officers in the employment of the Ministry is 511, of whom 374 served overseas, 104 served at home, and 33, or 6.5 per cent., have had no military service. Of the 35 whole-time medical officers in the northern region only three have never served. I regret that I am not in a position to supply the information asked for in the second part of the question.
