HC Deb 08 July 1919 vol 117 c1593
44. Mr. HURD

asked the Secretary of State for War the reply to his inquiries in India as to the health of the troops in the rest camp at Karachi; how many men are in hospital; what deaths, if any, have taken place owing to the heat; whether he is aware that the latest news from home received by soldiers there is dated January last; and whether their wives' letters are still being returned to England instead of being sent on to Karachi from Mesopotamia?


I regret I can add nothing at present to my reply to my hon. Friend on Friday last.


Has the right hon. Gentleman not communicated by cable with India, and with what result?


Yes, Sir, but do answer has yet been received.
