HC Deb 01 December 1909 vol 13 c500

asked the Secretary for War whether he had any information as to the outbreak of bubonic plague in Mauritius; and, if so, whether he would give orders to prevent the landing of the troops—the 7th Fusiliers—who were now on their way there from the Cape?


I only received notice of the question about 10 minutes ago. I have no personal knowledge, but I will make inquiry and inform the hon. Member. I have, however, no doubt that the Army medical authorities are fully alive to the necessity of taking precautions.
