Jamaica (Director of Medical Services)

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Navy – in the House of Commons at 12:00 am on 11th April 1945.

Alert me about debates like this

Dr. Morgan:

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies why the services of Dr. Thomas John Hallinan, C.B.E., the present Director of Medical Services in Jamaica, who has reached the retiring age, are being extended; and whether similar extensions will be granted to other medical officers in the Colonial Medical Service.

Dr. Hallinan will not reach the age of bo until January, 1946, and I understand from the Governor that he will then retire. The last part of the Question does not, therefore, arise.

Dr. Morgan:

Is the Minister aware that many Colonial officers, instead of being kept in the Service, are now serving as officers of the Ministry of Pensions?
