HC Deb 20 December 1915 vol 77 c4
3. Mr. ALDEN

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is able to make any statement regarding the present position of the various hospital units from England and Scotland that have been compelled to leave Serbia?


Sir Ralph Paget, who is acting for His Majesty's Government in the matter, has succeeded in collecting the members of the British units who escaped from Serbia at San Giovanni di Medua, from where it is hoped to transport them to Italy. Till transport is provided, which I hope will be very shortly, Sir Ralph Paget may be trusted to do all that is possible for the safety and comfort of the units under his charge.
