HC Deb 20 June 1956 vol 554 cc102-3W
Lieut.-Colonel Bromley - Davenport

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he will obtain a report from Malaya with regard to the circumstances in which Mr. Gordon Charteris Wemyss died at Batu Gajah Hospital; whether there has yet been a formal inquiry into this matter; and with what result.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

I called for a report from the Federation of Malaya as a result of certain representations I had received from Mrs. Wemyss about the circumstances of her husband's death. The High Commissioner's reply indicated that a departmental inquiry had been held to investigate Mrs. Wemyss's allegations, that he was satisfied that her husband's condition was correctly diagnosed, that he received sufficient and adequate care and attention in hospital, and that allegations to the contrary made by Mrs. Wemyss were without foundation.
