HC Deb 11 May 1949 vol 464 cc1843-4
30. Dr. Segal

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies for how many years has no doctor been available in the hospitals at Port Loko, Kabala and Putchum, in the Protectorate of Sierra Leone; how many beds have been closed down in consequence; and how many miles away is the nearest doctor now available.

Mr. Creech Jones

All three hospitals have been temporarily converted into dispensaries owing to shortage of medical officers. I am asking the Governor for the detailed information required.
