HC Deb 23 June 1915 vol 72 cc1170-1

asked the Home Secretary whether his attention has been directed to the conditions under which the German-owned product sanatogen is being manufactured and distributed in England; whether three Germans of military age are employed in such manufacture and distribution; whether sanatogen is being supplied to the Government for use in military hospitals; and, if so, whether, having regard to the methods adopted by the enemy, any steps could be taken to safeguard the conditions under which this product is manufactured and distributed?


I am informed that the business in question is conducted under a supervisor appointed by the Board of Trade. One German, who is of military age, is employed in the works at Penzance, and there are three in the London office. They will shortly be interned in accordance with the general policy. I am informed that the Army Council is not aware that sanatogen is being supplied for the use of military hospitals.
