§ SIR WALTER B. BARTTELOT
I Leg to ask the Secretary of State for War, Whether his attention has been called to a telegram in The Times of this morning stating that a battalion of the Yorkshire Regiment is to be chartered in the Ramleh barracks, which have already proved so fatal to the Duke of Cornwall's Light Infantry and to the King's Royal Rifle Corps? I would ask whether it is the case that the Yorkshire Regiment is to be quartered there, and whether the sanitary condition of those barracks has been considered since the last regiments were there?
THE MARQUESS OF HARTINGTON
I cannot answer Questions as to movements of troops without Notice; but I know that the sanitary condition of Ramleh barracks has been recently under the consideration of a General Officer. I will answer the Question tomorrow if I have any further information.
