§ Mr. CADOGAN
asked the Minister of Pensions if he will state the circumstances under which it has been found necessary to reappoint to his Department a non-service medical officer formerly retired from his Department on grounds of age; and whether, in the matter of the appointment to which the non-service medical officer has been reappointed, full consideration was given to the claims of ex-service medical officers for such appointment?
The hon. and gallant Member would appear to have been misinformed. No non-service medical officer has been reappointed by me to the medical service of my Department.
