HC Deb 14 February 1865 vol 177 c238

asked the Secretary of State for India, Whether anything has been done to improve the sanitary state of Calcuttta; if so, whether he has any objection to produce papers relating to the same; and, whether it has been determined to relieve the European troops serving in India by the overland route; if so, whether any and what arrangements have been made for their transmission?


said, in reply to the first Question, that a Sanitary Commission had been some time ago appointed, and that they had made a report on the subject to the Government of India. He, however, had as yet received no account of what had been done in consequence of that report. It was, he might add, the intention of the Government to send out the troops to India overland.
