HC Deb 21 July 1954 vol 530 c120W
63. Mr. D. Jones

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he is aware that 80,000 people living on the island of Grenada have an inadequate hospital service, including an out-of-date X-ray unit; whether he is aware that the $10,000 which he is withholding from the 1954 estimate of expenditure, would enable an up-to-date X-ray unit to be secured; and whether he will take such steps as are open to him to secure that end.

Mr. Lyttelton

As I endeavoured to explain in the answers I gave the hon. Member last week, there is an X-ray unit in operation but the Grenada Government plans to get a new X-ray when funds are available. The Colony's financial position is, however, at present difficult.
