§ 16. Mr. DAY
asked the Secretary of State for India whether he will give particulars of the improvements that have been made during the previous 18 months in the medical service at Chakrata United Province; the number of soldiers' wives and children for whose health the Royal Army Medical Corps are responsible at this station during the hot season; and is he satisfied that the hospital in this particular district is now properly staffed both in regard to doctors and nursing sisters?
§ Mr. BENN
As the result of an inquiry held in India in September, 1928, to investigate certain complaints with regard to medical treatment and arrangements at Chakrata, the Government of India made changes in the medical staff and provided a permanent increase in the nursing staff during the summer months. They were satisfied that these measures would prove adequate, and I have had no reason to question their conclusion. I could not answer the second part of the question without reference to India.
