HC Deb 26 July 1883 vol 282 c552

asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether there has been any further outbreak of cholera among the troops in Egypt since the information obtained on Tuesday?


Sir, I have already stated, in answer to the noble Lord the Member for West Essex (Lord Eustace Cecil), that all the information that has been received by the military authorities has been communicated to the newspapers. We have not received to-day any further telegrams. All I can add is, that although the telegrams that have been received are not perfectly clear, as far as I can understand, there have been 14 cases in all among the British troops in Egypt, of which, I am sorry to say, 11 appear to have had a fatal termination.
