§ 18. Dame Joan Vickers
asked the Minister of Overseas Development what arrangements she is making to send a senior welfare officer to the Bahamas to help with the planning and organisation of a department of welfare for the islands.
§ Dame Joan Vickers
May I ask the hon. Gentleman how long this appointment is going to last, and whether it will be part of this officer's duty to train local personnel for work in this service? For some time there has been a Minister of Welfare without an office, or a secretary to help him, and I think that the Department should be set up properly.
