HC Deb 29 March 1901 vol 92 cc213-4
SIR WALTER FOSTER (Derbyshire, Ilkeston)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether, in view of the increase of plague at Cape Town and the danger of importing the disease into this country, he will direct that all military invalids and soldiers arriving at English ports in ships on which any case of plague, has occurred should be isolated and kept under observation for a sufficient period before being allowed to go to their homes or to military camps.


Instructions to this effect were issued on the 22nd instant to all concerned.
