HC Deb 03 April 1946 vol 421 c204W
77. Lady Noel-Buxton

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the Government of Tanganyika has adequate machinery for coordinating malaria control schemes on sisal estates; or whether there are any plans for establishing such machinery.

Mr. Georģe Hall:

The coordination of malaria control schemes on sisal estates in Tanganyika forms part of the general public health service of the territory. This service is not yet fully effective owing to the acute shortage of staff in the medical department. Recruitment to fill existing vacancies in the establishment of the department is proceeding as rapidly as possible.
