HC Deb 09 December 1890 vol 349 c750

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that the Cavalry Barracks at Windsor are in a most insanitary condition at present, and whether some cases of typhoid fever have occurred there recently; and is he prepared to take such steps as may be necessary to prevent further risk of disease from the cause referred to amongst Her Majesty's troops now stationed there?


The sanitary state of the Cavalry Barracks at Windsor is reported to be very good. Two cases of enteric fever have occurred in the Royal Horse Guards. In one case the disease was probably contracted while on leave; the origin of the other case cannot be traced.
