HC Deb 23 February 1927 vol 202 c1764

asked the Secretary for the Colonies whether he is aware that there is a lack of facilities for bacteriological and scientific work in the Colony of Fiji; and whether, in view of the numerous tropical diseases that are prevalent and require treatment, he will make arrangements for such facilities to be provided?


It is unfortunately the case that laboratory facilities in Suva have been limited, and that work has been restricted by a shortage of apparatus. Fresh equipment has, however, been approved, and the facilities are now more adequate.
