§ SIR WALTER FOSTER
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War if it is the intention of the authorities to second Brigade Surgeon Lieut.-Colonel Godwin, about to be promoted a Surgeon Colonel, while holding the appointment of Professor of Military Surgery at the Royal Victoria Hospital, Netley?
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR WAR (Mr. E. STANHOPE,) Lincolnshire, Horncastle
The officer in question is not seconded in his rank, but is made supernumerary to the Medical Staff. His appointment to a Professorship, therefore, causes no reduction in the number of medical officers.
