HC Deb 23 February 1885 vol 294 c1052

In reply to Mr. HALSEY,


said, he had received a telegram from the Fleet Surgeon, which stated that the Captain of the Britannia training ship for cadets reported, with respect to the outbreak of scarlet fever on that vessel, that the number of cadets in the hospital at Dartmouth was 24. All of them were doing well. Extra beds and bedding had been sent to cover emergencies. Six attendants and a nurse had been sent on Saturday. The outbreak was of a very mild character. They hoped to stamp it out; and every investigation was being made as to the cause.
