HC Deb 25 February 1918 vol 103 c1116W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War if he will have an immediate inquiry made into the state of things in the camp of the 5th Worcesters, Mistley, Essex, where the men are lodged in malt-houses with no fires or heating apparatus of any description, the buildings being dark and dismal, and in consequence of these unhealthy conditions the men are reporting sick daily; and will he also inquire into the absence of any facilities for recreation and the provision for bathing, the bath-house being described as being in a filthy condition?


Inquiry is being made, and I will communicate with my hon. Friend as soon as I am in a position to do so.
