§ SIR HARRY VERNEY
asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether, in the field hospitals detailed for service in the approaching campaign, any increase of the Army Hospital Corps Staff would be made, for the purpose of providing washermen, sanitary police, watermen, and other subsidiary services of the hospital, of which the want was so much felt in the Egyptian campaign?
THE MARQUESS OF HARTINGTON
The arrangements for equipping the Medical Service of the Expedition to Suakim have been made locally, and Reports as to details have not yet been received. The Army Hospital Corps in Egypt has been reinforced by a detachment of 50 non-commissioned officers and men.
