HC Deb 07 November 1944 vol 404 cc1278-9W
Mr. Muff

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is satisfied that proper treatment is being given to wounded soldiers; and whether his Department has a long-term policy of hospital and nursing treatment, so that soldiers are not discharged from hospital before proper remedial measures have been taken.

Sir J. Grigg

As long as soldiers remain in the Army they are not discharged from the medical units until proper remedial measures have been taken. If they are discharged from the Army as unfit for further military service they continue to receive treatment under arrangements made by the Ministry of Pensions. The needs of these men are always made known to the Ministry before they pass to their care from the care of the Army.
