HC Deb 19 February 1900 vol 79 c374

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he can say when the Report of the Malarial Commission will be issued; and will he state whether Her Majesty's Commissioner has yet advised the establishment of a sanatorium in the Shire Highlands, British Central Africa.


The report is not expected before the close of the year. The question of a sanatorium in the Shire Highlands has not been raised by Her Majesty's Commissioner. There is a hospital at Blantyre of which the Administration will assume control on the 1st of April next, and a staff of nurses paid from Protectorate funds.
