HC Deb 22 July 1918 vol 108 c1457
65. Mr. FERENS

asked the Undersecretary of State for War if he is aware that a considerable number of soldiers suffering from Bilharzia contracted in Palestine are being detained in Egypt; is he aware that the chance of their throwing off this disease is not nearly so probable in Egypt as it would be at home; and will he take steps to have these men brought to England?


I am in communication with the military authorities in Egypt regarding this question, and will write to my hon. Friend as soon as possible.
