§ 39. Mr. Sorensen
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how many African and British doctors, respectively, and qualified nurses are now giving service in West Africa; and what progress he expects will be registered in respect of the expansion of medical services and the increase of African doctors and nurses during the next five years.
§ Mr. George Hall
In order to give a complete reply to this Question I am asking the West African Governors for present figures and future estimates, and I will write to my hon. Friend when I have their replies.
§ Mr. Sorensen
May I ask the right hon. Gentleman whether he himself knows in a broad sense whether any substantial progress has been made in the absorption of West Africans into the medical and nursing service?
