HC Deb 05 March 1940 vol 358 c229W
Sir Smedley Crooke

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will consider the advisability of forming an Army Chiropodist Corps similar to that of the dentists, so that the equally-important matter of the soldiers' feet can be attended to by properly qualified men who can be recruited from the register of the Joint Council of Chiropodists, who are willing to serve at home or abroad?

Mr. Stanley

It is not thought necessary to form an Army Chiropodist Corps. The existing arrangements, as indicated in the answer given to my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Hertford (Sir M. Sueter) on 1st February, are considered to be adequate.
