§ 71. Mr. D. Jones
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what salary is being offered for the post of radiologist at Georgetown, British Guiana; how the salary compares with similar positions in this country; and whether, in the light of the inability to attract suitable applicants, he will consider taking steps to increase the salary offered.
§ Mr. Lyttelton
The salary offered is £1,150 to £1,350, plus certain consultation fees and allowances. In this country, where taxation is, of course, higher, the salary of a radiologist in the grade of senior house medical officer is £1,250 to £1,750.
The Government of British Guiana has under consideration a proposal to increase the pay of specialists.
