HC Deb 23 July 1902 vol 111 c1006

To ask the Secretary of State for India whether any arrangements have yet been made for the punctual attendance of the medical officer for the examination of passengers leaving Calcutta by morning sailings of outward bound steamers; and can he state whether the shed in which passengers are examined has yet been put in a state of repair, and the practice of medical examination in a public thoroughfare discontinued.

(Answered by Secretary Lord George Hamilton.) I have no information about these matters. They are such as are dealt with by the local authorities with-out being reported to the Secretary of State. Any complaints on the subject should be addressed to these authorities.
