HC Deb 25 April 1956 vol 551 c143W
43. Mr. Biggs-Davison

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether there are now a surgeon and an anaesthetist on the staff of the Connaught Hospital, Freetown.

Mr. Hare

A surgeon is now serving at the hospital. Adequate arrangements exist for the giving of anaesthesia, but the appointment of a full-time specialist anaesthetist is under consideration.
