§ 35. Mr. Riley
asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether his attention has been called to complaints of bad and inadequate sanitary provisions in the urban areas of the island of Nevis, St. Kitts, West Indies; and whether he is asking the local authorities as to what is being done by way of remedy?
§ Mr. George Hall
The Answer to the first part of the Question is in the affirmative. The question of urban sanitation 1339 in St. Kitts-Nevis has been examined by the Comptroller for Development and Welfare and his medical adviser, and the Governor of the Leeward Islands has reported by telegram that he has as a result despatched a public health scheme for Nevis and St. Kitts, involving assistance under the Colonial Development and Welfare Act.
