asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether he has been able to give the attentive consideration he promised to the representations made to him by the Parliamentary Bills Committee of the British Medical Association and other bodies on behalf of the Army Medical Officers affected by the recent Army Medical Warrant, and what the result of that consideration is?

Sir, the subject, which is one of much detail, has undergone careful consideration in the De partment; but I have not yet been able so far to consider it as to submit the result to the Treasury, which is a necessary preliminary to the submission of any modifications of the Warrant for the sanction of the Queen. No time shall be lost in taking the necessary steps, and an answer shall be returned without any unnecessary delay.
