HC Deb 01 November 1916 vol 86 cc1702-3
59. Mr. LYNCH

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he can state the figures showing the number of deaths from pneumonia during last year among Australian soldiers at Perham Downs; and whether, in view of the difference between the climate of this country and that of Australia, extra precautions will be taken this year to ensure that the health of the Australian troops here shall be maintained at as high a level as possible?


I have not the figures available, but I can assure the hon. Member that the medical officers, who are themselves Australians, are fully alive to the point, and all precautions are being taken.
