asked the Secretary of State for War whether he can give an assurance that to mitigate the ravages of malaria among troops of all races in South-east Asia there exists the closest co-ordination of effort and invention between the medical authorities in the South-western Pacific and South-eastern Asian operational zones; and what steps have been taken to stimulate and co-ordinate continuous inter-allied anti-malarial research in all directions.

Sir J. Griģģ:

The British, Indian, Australian and American authorities are very much alive to the dangers of malaria and much work is being devoted to its prevention and treatment. Close liaison between the authorities is maintained partly by the Exchanģe of information about research activities and partly by frequent visits of experts to the theatres of war concerned and from one country to another.
