asked the Minister of Health, whether he is aware of the shortage of doctors in Weymouth and Wyke Regis; and whether he will consult with the First Lord of the Admiralty and the Secretary of State for War with a view to the release from the Forces of two doctors whose names will be given to him by the Dorset local medical war committee?

I am informed that difficulties are arising in this area owing to the absence of a number of the doctors with the Forces. As regards the two doctors referred to in the last part of the Question, my officers are in communication with the Central Medical War Committee, through whom applications are made to the Service Departments for the release of medical officers where the circumstances justify that course.
