HC Deb 02 August 1898 vol 63 c862

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War if the attention of the War Office has been directed to the alleged unsatisfactory condition of the Forrest Hospital at Malta as regards drainage and accommodation; also concerning the Station Hospital, Valetta, alleged to be old and insanitary, with defective drains and insufficient accommodation?


In view of the increased garrison of Malta, the hospital accommodation requires revision, and the erection of a new hospital is under consideration. Those hospitals now in use are as sanitary as it is possible to render buildings in Malta which were not built specially for the purpose to which they are now devoted.
