HC Deb 06 March 1951 vol 485 cc25-6W
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 needs of members of His Majesty's Forces, following a letter from a Member of this House.

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.
