HC Deb 18 April 1940 vol 359 c1141W
Mr. Groves

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that the arrangements made for the allocation of work amongst Army medical officers is frequently unsatisfactory, in that some officers are responsible for comparatively few men, while others have a responsibility beyond reasonable capacity; and whether, in the interests of efficiency, he will make arrangements tending towards an equal allocation of responsibility?

Mr. Stanley

The answer to the first part of the Question is in the negative. The allocation of duties among medical officers is regulated according to local conditions from time to time.
