HC Deb 01 March 1915 vol 70 c552

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War if he will cause inquiries to be made respecting the number of men sleeping in tents at Bulford Camp; how many men have to find accommodation in each tent; and whether the men who have to sleep in tents have to eat their breakfast in a hut in which already forty men have to live and sleep and eat?


The number of men in tents at Bulford Camp is 410 of whom 302 mess in huts where other men have slept. The average number of men sleeping in one tent is seven. As the huts are well aired before breakfast, there is no sanitary objection to the men feeding in them. It is understood that the units prefer these arrangements to being placed in billets.
