§ 67. Mr. WATT
asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that the hospitals in Bagdad are entirely without a supply of beer, so that the patients when ordered such by the medical officer are quite unable to obtain it, whereas the messes of the officers of regiments stationed there have beer, wine, and spirits on their tables in abundance; and, if so, will he see that orders are sent out for more equal distribution?
§ Mr. MACPHERSON
I have telegraphed for information, and will communicate with my hon. Friend as soon as possible.
