HC Deb 15 May 1919 vol 115 cc1797-8W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether, in repatriating any of the European troops in India after the hot season, he will take care that the fullest provision be made to safeguard their health in their transmission to a cold European climate; and whether he will instruct the Indian authorities on the subject, more especially since some men will by then have been in India for five years without leave?

Captain GUEST

The attention of the authorities in India has recently been drawn to the necessity of safeguarding the health of the British troops returning from India, and the matter is also being given special consideration by the Army Council in conjunction with the Ministry of Shipping.
