HC Deb 11 November 1908 vol 196 c266
MR. SUMMERBELL (Sunderland)

I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies if his attention has been called to the administration of the medical department of Trinidad; and, if so, can he state whether it is the intention of the Government to take steps having for their object the reorganisation of that Department on lines that will give to Trinidad a health ordinance on more modern lines.


The Secretary of State has received no official representations on the subject, and he is not aware that any scheme of re-organisation is under the consideration of the Colonial Government.

MR. REES (Montgomery Boroughs)

Since the Indian coolies flourish so well in Trinidad, can it be said the condition of the place is so very bad?


We are doing our best to bring about an improvement.
