Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Supply – in the House of Commons at 12:00 am on 21st March 1945.
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether his attention has been called to the need for improved and enlarged hospital accommodation for all races in Tanganyika; and what proposals he has approved for remedying this matter throughout the Territory.
I have been asked to reply. Yes, Sir. Improvements of hospital accommodation, both at Dar es Salaam and elsewhere, are at present being carried out, at an approximate cost of £100,000. Further improvements will be provided for in the post-war development programme, but this is still under consideration, and my right hon. and gallant Friend is not in a position to make a statement as to the details.
Whilst I appreciate the reason for the absence of the Secretary of State, will my hon. Friend represent that this is a matter which should brook no delay at all, in the interests of all sections of the community.
Is this hospital the Indian hospital, or some other additional hospital?
