HC Deb 23 July 1918 vol 108 cc1657-8W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War if he is in a position to make a statement as regards the health of the British and Indian troops in Mesopotamia, the provision of medical officers and hospitals, and the supply of vegetables and fruit, and of comforts required during the season of hot weather?


I am glad to be able to state that the hot weather conditions in Mesopotamia are much less trying this year, and that the health of the troops shows marked improvement since last year. The provision of medical officers and hospitals is adequate, and there is an ample supply of vegetables, fruit, and comforts.
