§ 9. Mr. Bernays
asked the Secretary of State for War whether the inquiry into the measures to be taken to improve the conditions in troopships is now completed; and, if so, will he state what changes he intends to make?
It has recently been decided to increase troopdeck space on the older vessels to accord with that on the latest built troopship, and to increase the 1561 washing facilities, while an improved system of ventilation is being installed in a troopship now under construction. Additional improvements are at present under review.
