*CAPTAIN FABER (Hampshire, Andover)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War what is the accommodation in the Bulford Isolation Hospital for scarlet fever cases, when this isolation hospital was erected, and how long it has been used for that purpose; and what is the total number of regiments and batteries within a six-mile radius of Bulford.
§ MR. HALDANE
This hospital has accommodation for four beds; it was completed in January, 1904, and has been used as an isolation hospital since that date. This accommodation has been supplemented by a hospital marquee erected in the infectious enclosure on 23rd April, 1908, but this has not yet been required. The number of regiments, and batteries within a radius of six miles is eighteen.
