HC Deb 20 July 1893 vol 15 c87
MR. W. S. B. M'LAREN (Cheshire, Crewe)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether the system of the regulation of prostitution, and the examination of the women, is still in force in Malta; whether it is the case that soldiers sent to the hospital are compelled, under threat of punishment, to name the woman from whom they have contracted the disease; whether, in the event of a soldier not being able to name the woman, he is taken in charge of a sergeant to the house in which he alleges she resides, in order that he may point her out; and whether he will order a stop to be put to the entire system?


A full Report on the points referred to in the question has been called for from Malta.
