§ 1. Mr. GINNELL
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether any international, precautionary, or preventive measures are being taken, or instructions issued, against the danger of plague, cholera, or other rapidly spreading disease arising from the War; and, if not, whether the most competent medical advice on the subject will be obtained and made public at the earliest possible date?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Lord Robert Cecil)
Discussions are in progress between French and British experts as to 344 the measures to be taken for the prevention of epidemics, and the civil population will receive ample warning and advice should any danger arise.
