§ 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if he is aware that 80,000 people living on the island of Grenada have an inadequate hospital service, including an out-of-date X-ray unit; whether he is aware that the $10,000 which he is withholding from the 1954 estimate of expenditure, would enable an up-to-date X-ray unit to be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.
