§ 68. Mr. McSHANE
asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies if he 2104 is aware that a large proportion of the inhabitants of Rodriguez are suffering from under-nourishment; and, if so, what action he proposes to take in the matter?
§ Dr. SHIELS
My Noble Friend has received no information as to the existence of a state of under-nourishment among the inhabitants of Rodriguez, but the Governor is visiting the island in the course of the next few days and he is being asked to report.
§ Mr. HORE-BELISHA
Does not the hon. Gentleman think it would be a good thing to send them some bounty-fed sugar from England?
