Dr. RUTHERFORD (Middlesex, Brentford)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India whether he has yet received answers from the Government of India to his questions in April in reference to the special medical staff deputed to combat the plague.
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for INDIA (Mr. Morley,) Montrose Burghs
I have heard from the Government of India that local governments are engaged in collecting the needful information, but as the statistics wanted extend over a series of years they cannot be procured without some delay. The subject of the plague is engaging my particular attention, and full Papers will shortly be laid on the Table.
