The figure quoted by my hon. Friend includes men who have been placed in Medical Grades III and IV and men otherwise unavailable for service; those available for posting who have not yet been called up number about 150, the majority of whom are in the oldest of the age classes so far registered for military service, and they may expect to be posted at an early date.
