HC Deb 30 March 1949 vol 463 c1191
1. Dr. Segal

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how many new cases of tuberculosis have been notified in Nigeria during the last 12 months for which figures are available.

The Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies (Mr. Rees-Williams)

I have asked the Governor for this information and will communicate with my hon. Friend when I receive it.

Dr. Segal

Would not the Minister agree that all the available information points to an increased incidence in this disease? Would not he further agree that all the existing facilities for treatment are woefully inadequate?

Mr. Rees-Williams

I would rather wait until I have the information from the Governor before making any comment.
