§ Mr. Paget
asked the Secretary of State for War between what dates Sapper C. Collins, 14901409, 1292 C.R.E. (Works) M.E.L.F., was quarantined upon a naval transport upon which cholera was suspected; and what steps were taken to notify the next of kin of people on board this ship or to enable them to communicate with their next of kin.
§ Mr. Shinwell
Information on this matter has been called for from the military authorities overseas and I will write to my hon. and learned Friend when a report has been received. The next of kin are not normally informed in cases of quarantine; but only in cases where a man is considered by the medical authorities to be seriously ill or dangerously ill.
