§ 78. Sir BERTRAM FALLE
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty the number of ratings invalided with tuberculosis who were sent sick from His Majesty's Ship "Warspite" during the last commission?
§ The CIVIL LORD of the ADMIRALTY (Mr. G. H. Hall)
The number of cases of tuberculosis which have occurred in His Majesty's Ship "Warspite" since she recommissioned on the 23rd January, 1929, is 13, of which 11 have been invalided and two have died in hospital.
§ Sir B. FALLE
Will the hon. Member specially inquire into this matter and see what the cause may be of so many cases, and can he say how many of the men have been pensioned?
