§ 52. Mr. Anthony Greenwood
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he will give details of research into the prevention and treatment of 29W tuberculosis carried out either by the Colonial Office or by Colonial Governments.
§ Mr. Hopkinson
A great deal of research into the prevention and treatment of tuberculosis is being carried out in many of the Colonial Territories. Proposals are under consideration for the establishment of a Tuberculosis Research Unit in West Africa to which Colonial Development and Welfare funds would contribute, but most of the work in this field is carried out and financed by Colonial Governments themselves. Full information on all that is being done is not readily available, but I am arranging for it to be assembled and will gladly send it to the hon. Member.
