Alert me about debates like this

Dr. Morgan:

asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies why Dr. Eric de Verteuil, the senior medical officer of health in Trinidad, was allowed to resign from the Government medical service; whether he is aware of the good work in the Colony by this medical and public health expert over a series of years; and whether the reason for his non-promotion to the post of chief medical officer was the fact that, though white, he was a native of Trinidad?
