HC Deb 25 May 1916 vol 82 c2293

asked the Under-Secretary for War if he can state the number of deaths which have taken place at the Prees Heath Camp, Salop, during the last three months; if he is aware that the soldiers encamped there complain of its unhealthy condition and the unsuitability of the site for an encampment; and what action is being taken to remedy the existing state of things?


The number of deaths during the last three months is thirty-eight. The condition of this camp has been specially reported on and it is stated to be good.
