asked the Secretary of State for War after how many attacks of malaria soldiers fighting in Burma and Eastern theatres of war are considered for repatriation on medical grounds; and how many have been repatriated because of the effect of malaria.
Sir J. GriÄ£Ä£:
The general state of a soldier's health, and not any fixed number of attacks of malaria, determines whether he is repatriated to this country. I regret that the figures asked for in the second part of the Question are not readily available. If modern methods of treatment are properly applied men need not normally now be invalided to this country on account of malaria.
