HC Deb 04 May 1916 vol 82 c126
52. Captain C. BATHURST

asked the Prime Minister whether, seeing that the men of the 4th Battalion Wiltshire Regiment and other British troops in India suffer considerably from dental caries and other dental defects, which materially affect their health, the same provision can be made for their dental treatment at the public expense, either by the Indian Government or by the War Office, that is made in the case of other British troops serving overseas?

The SECRETARY of STATE for INDIA (Mr. Chamberlain)

On receiving the letter in which my hon. Friend called my attention to the case of the Wiltshire Regiment, I telegraphed to the Government of India. I am also communicating with the War Office on the subject.
