HC Deb 12 July 1900 vol 85 c1311
SIR WALTER FOSTER (Derbyshire, Ilkeston)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War if he can state the number of admissions for enteric at Bloemfontein, and the number of deaths from that disease for the six weeks ending 22nd June.


No complete Returns for the three weeks ending 22nd June have yet reached the War Office. For the three weeks ending 1st June the figures are as follows:—First week: 684 admissions, 120 deaths; second week: 269 admissions, 108 deaths; third week: 227 admissions, 93 deaths. If the hon. Member will add these figures to those which I gave him on the 3rd inst. for the previous weeks he will find that the total percentage of deaths is about nineteen.
