HC Deb 08 June 1899 vol 72 c643

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India whether his attention has been drawn to the proceedings of the Central Committee of the Pasteur Institute, held on the 15th April last, at the office of the Director-General, Indian Medical Service, at Simla (the Director-General himself in the chair), when it was proposed to ask the Government to make a grant for a Pasteur Institute, and to place it under a Government medical officer; whether this committee has been formed with the sanction of Government; and whether it is proposed to grant them the assistance asked for.


(1) I have seen a newspaper report of the meeting of the Pasteur Institute Committee to which the question refers. (2) The Government of India are, I believe, aware of the formation and proceedings of the committee; but I ascertained some weeks ago that they had not decided on their course of action. They hoped, however, to deal with the subject during the present summer.
