HC Deb 18 January 1945 vol 407 cc381-2W
Mr. Ness Edwards

asked the Minister of Health what are the arrangements whereby medical or hospital treatment is made available for wives and children of serving men called up since the outbreak of war.

Mr. Willink

The wives and children of men serving in H.M. Forces have the facilities for medical and hospital treatment ordinarily available to the civil population. In a few cases, e.g., the wives and families of soldiers serving on normal Regular Army engagements, there are special facilities also. This limited group are eligible to receive, subject to certain conditions, medical attendance by an Army doctor or treatment in a military or E.M.S. hospital.
