§ 66. Mr. MARJORIBANKS
asked the Secretary of State for War whether, in view of the increase of meningitis in the Army at home, he has taken any and, if so, what steps of a precautionary nature?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for WAR (Mr. Shaw)
I can assure the hon. Member that every possible precaution is being taken.
§ Mr. MARJORIBANKS
Have any steps been taken in connection with the permanent buildings in which the Army is housed especially as regards the winter months?
§ Mr. SHAW
Special precautions have been taken with regard to sterilisation of utensils, ventilation, prevention of overcrowding, and, above all, with regard to searching for persons who are suspected 1947 of being carriers of the disease. I do not think there is any need to make special provision with regard to buildings.
