§ MAJOR ANSTRUTHER-GRAY
I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether, in view of the position which has lately arisen, and may arise again, owing to the only doctor in St. Helena being incapacitated from work, and the distance and delay involved in procuring other medical assistance, he will consider the desirability of appointing an assistant medical officer for that Colony.
§ THE UNDER-SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE COLONIES (Colonel SEELY,) Liverpool, Abercromby
The Secretary of State has not received any intimation of the Colonial Surgeon of St. Helena being incapacitated from work and regrets that he cannot add anything to answer returned by my predecessor to the Question asked by the hon. and gallant Member on the same subject on the 26th March last.
