Defence Medical Services

Volume 456: debated on Monday 29 January 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence pursuant to the answer of 5 December 2006, Official Report, columns 357-58, on Defence Medical Services, what the revived manning requirement figures are for different categories of doctors. (110900)

[holding answer 23 January 2007]: The revised Defence Medical Services (DMS) manning requirement figures were submitted for endorsement last year as part of a larger body of work, and work on the details of other parts of this submission caused a delay in the endorsement of the new figures. The revised manning requirement figures for the DMS have now been endorsed and a formal announcement will be made in the near future.
