HC Deb 28 April 1910 vol 17 c632

asked whether the Secretary of State has information to the effect that the King of the Belgians has made a large grant of money for the investigation of sleeping sickness and other tropical diseases?

Colonel SEELY

I understand that the King of the Belgians has granted one million francs for the Service de l'Hygiène in the Congo, to be specially devoted to combating sleeping sickness, and half a million francs for the construction of native hospitals.


May I express the hope that in future discussions in this House this will be counted unto the King and his people for righteousness?
