§ 56. Mr. D. Jones
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the post of radiologist at Georgetown, British Guiana, which was vacated on 21st July last, has yet been filled; and whether he will take special emergency steps to see that the Colony is supplied with a radiologist as soon as possible.
§ Mr. J. Foster
No. The Colonial Office have been trying without success since last March to find a radiologist. The post is being advertised again. If an emergency arose the Acting Governor would no doubt try to get help from a neighbouring territory, but my right hon. Friend has not heard that this has been thought necessary nor has he received any request for special or temporary assistance.
