35. Mr. Leslie Hale
asked the Secretary of State for War what is the routine procedure for investigating matters relating to grave and urgent medical 26W needs of members of His Majesty's Forces, following a letter from a Member of this House.
§ Mr. Strachey
Letters relating to these matters from hon. Members are given immediate attention. They are referred to the War Office branch responsible for the subject dealt with and, if necessary, inquiries are made of the command or lower formation concerned. The need for an early reply is stressed in all cases and the information when received is passed by the War Office branch to the Minister's private office with the minimum delay.
