HC Deb 14 February 1927 vol 202 cc572-3

The following Question stood on the Order Paper in the name of Sir COOPER RAWSON:

To ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he will state from what date it is proposed to appoint a native doctor, to succeed a European doctor, at Dunkwa, Gold Coast Colony, where there are over 40 European residents, including women; and, seeing that the nearest European doctors to Dunkwa are at Sekondi and Kumasi, 6½ and 4½ hours away, respectively, with only one train a day in each case, will he appoint a European doctor at Dunkwa?


On a point of Order. I did not hear you call Question No. 18, Mr. Speaker. I was delayed by the fog.


I did call it; so it was not my fault. The hon. Member must take the written reply.
