§ 65. Mr. Driberg
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how many public hospital beds are available free in Jamaica; and to what extent this accommodation falls short of the estimated need.
§ Mr. Rees-Williams
There are at present 5,576 free beds available to meet the estimated need of 7,850.
§ Mr. Driberg
Could my hon. Friend urge the Government of Jamaica to try to divert to hospital building and socially useful purposes some of the vast sums of money otherwise spent in building luxury hotels?
