HC Deb 30 July 1900 vol 87 cc21-2

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether any medical inquiry has been held upon the cases of enteric fever reported from Cork, Fermoy, and the Cove of Cork, after the return of the men from the manœuvres on Salisbury Plain; and if the plaint of the Army Medical Report will obtain attention this year.


Medical inquiries have been made into all these cases of enteric fever. All representations made in the annual report of the Army Medical Department receive attention; but I am not aware to what particular point the hon. Member refers.


Salisbury Plain is not a thickly-populated district, at any rate.
