HC Deb 21 August 1916 vol 85 c2278
95. Sir H. CRAIK

asked the Secretary of State for War whether any steps can be taken to relieve the men belonging to the Mesopotamian force by new drafts, as the climatic and other conditions, as well as the insufficiency of supplies, render a prolonged stay in that region dangerous to life?


Such measures as are practicable have been and are being taken with a view to relieving units which have suffered most from climate and other causes in Mesopotamia.
