HC Deb 08 July 1919 vol 117 c1598
40. Mr. SEXTON

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that at the Ferlingham Concentration Camp, Boulogne, demobilised men returning home are compelled to submit themselves to medical examination by a German army doctor in German uniform, and there is resentment among the soldiers in consequence, and whether he will take steps to substitute some other medical man; whether he is aware that at the same camp returning men are compelled to change their clean underclothing given to them at their billets for underclothing which, though fumigated, had been previously verminous, and that the men are refusing to wear them and prefer travelling without any underclothing; and whether he will make inquiries into this matter?


I regret that the inquiries in this case are not yet complete, but I will write to the hon. Member as soon as I am in a position to give him any information on the matter.
