44. Mrs. L. Jeger

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what facilities exist in Nigeria for study and research in nutritional problems on a permanent basis, as distinct from occasional visits from specialists.

The Nigerian Government has a full-time nutrition adviser. Research on nutrition is also carried on at the University College of Ibadan and by the Hot Climate Physiological Research Unit. Further research work is being considered by the West African Council for Medical Research.
