HC Deb 28 May 1867 vol 187 c1200

said, he would beg to ask the Secretary of State for War, What Reports have been received as to the efficiency in cases of fever of Dr. Warbourg's Tincture; and whether any steps are about to be taken to secure a supply of so valuable a medicine for the use of Her Majesty's troops serving on Foreign stations?


, in reply, said, there was no occasion to take any steps for securing a supply of the medicine for foreign stations, as under the present practice a supply was forwarded wherever application to that effect was made by the medical officer in charge. He was quite ready to produce the Reports which had been received if the hon. Member wished him to do so; but their general tendency was that Dr. Warbourg's Tincture had not as good a curative effect as many other medicines less costly.
