HC Deb 08 May 1885 vol 298 cc20-1

asked the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Whether his attention has been called to the remarkable discovery reported to have been made by Dr. Jaime Ferran, of Valencia, in connection with inoculation for cholera; and, whether, following the precedent adopted in the case of the Reports of the recent French and German Cholera Commissions, he will instruct the British Minister at Madrid to forward for submission to Parliament translations of any Papers of Dr. Ferran's and Reports of the Madrid Academy of Medicine on the subject?


I have seen the Reports to which my hon. Friend refers, and Her Majesty's Minister at Madrid will be instructed to send home translations of them.
