HC Deb 31 March 1887 vol 313 c68
MR. H. J. WILSON (York, W. E., Holmfirth)

asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether he has obtained information from Egypt as to the statements made in The Pall Mall Gazette of 27th January, as to the establishment there, wherever our troops are stationed, of a system similar to that which prevailed under the Contagious Diseases Acts; and, what steps will be taken in. the matter?

THE SECRETARY OF STATE (Mr. E. STANHOPE) (Lincolnshire, Horncastle)

I have received a Report on the subject from the General Officer Commanding in Egypt which I will show to the hon. Member, and which I shall have no objection, if he wishes it, to lay upon the Table. I may add that the arrangements appear to be mainly those of the Egyptian Government, which were in force before the arrival of the British troops.
