MR. MOON (St. Pancras, N.)

To ask the Secretary of State for India, what hospital accommodation and number of nurses are available at Aden for European officers and native troops engaged in Somaliland.

(Answered by Secretary Lord George Hamilton.) The hospital accommodation at Aden for native troops consists of seventy-eight beds, of which forty are vacant, and more could probably be arranged for. A native field hospital is about to be sent there immediately. European officers can be accommodated at the Station Hospital, where there are two European nurses.
