HC Deb 20 October 1954 vol 531 cc1181-3
9. Mr. Benn

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies the annual Government expenditure on medical services per capita for the African, Asian and European populations, respectively, in Uganda, Kenya, Tanganyika, Nyasaland and Northern Rhodesia.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

Since Government medical services in these territories are organised for the benefit of the community irrespective of race it is impossible to give per capita details of expenditure separately for the African, Asian and European populations. Health services in Nyasaland and Northern Rhodesia have now become a Federal responsibility.
