§ MR. BANBURY
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War if he has received any recent Reports of the quality of meat supplied to the large military hospitals, especially Netley, and what is the purport of these Reports; and whether any arrangements are being made to enable Army medical officers to attend the meat inspection classes in Edinburgh?
§ * MR. CAMPBELL-BANNERMAN
No special Reports have been called for on meat alone; but an Inspector, who was recently sent round to several hospitals, including Netley, reported that in some cases the articles generally supplied by contractors were not quite up to the specification. Steps were at once taken to remedy this state of things. A class of medical officers will attend the next course in meat-judging.
§ MR. HANBURY
Does the rule as to two-thirds of foreign meat apply to hospitals as well as elsewhere?
