HC Deb 31 October 1944 vol 404 c603
3. Mr. Quintin Hogg

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he has yet investigated the complaint concerning a British general hospital in S.E.A.C., of the identity of which he has been informed.

The Secretary of State for War (Sir James Grigg)

It is clear, from a telegraphic report I have received, that this hospital was opened on 1st March, and that, at the end of March, the site was overrun by the Japanese and was the scene of fierce fighting. This seems to me to explain fully why the hospital itself was moved several times and why its buildings have had to be considerably rebuilt. I am expecting a full report by air mail.
