HC Deb 17 January 1945 vol 407 c154
41. Mr. Turton

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he is appointing nutrition experts for service throughout the Colonial Empire; and at what date a nutrition expert can be made available for duty in the Colony of Gambia.

Mr. Emrys-Evans

Yes, Sir. Some appointments have already been made and further appointments have been provided for under the Colonial Development and Welfare Act. It is hoped to send a trained nutrition assistant to the Gambia within the next few months.
