§ 30. Dr. Segal
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies for how many years has no doctor been available in 1844 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.
