§ 13. Mr. David Adams
asked the Secretary of State for War, what objection there is to enlisting doctors from Palestine in the British Army for service in India; and 1418 whether he is aware that such applications have been made to Army Headquarters in Jerusalem and the services declined?
§ Sir J. Grigg
Hitherto Palestinian doctors commissioned in the British Army have been retained in the Middle East, where their services are required. Should there be at any time a surplus there of suitable candidates, there would be no objection to appointing them in the Middle East and sending them to India for duty. I am not aware of the facts referred to in the second part of my hon. Friend's Question, but inquiries are being made into this.
