HC Deb 04 July 1919 vol 117 cc1278-9W

asked the Secretary of State for War if he can now state the reply to his inquiries in India as to the health of the troops in the rest camp at Karachi; how many men are in hospital; what deaths, if any, have taken place owing to the heat; whether he is aware that the latest news from home received by soldiers there is dated January last; and whether their wives' letters are still being returned to England instead of being sent on to Karachi from Mesopotamia'?


A reply has not yet been received from India, but as I stated on Tuesday last I will let my hon. Friend know as soon as I am in a position to give him the information asked for.
