asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how many new cases of tuberculosis have been notified in Nigeria during the last 12 months for which figures are available.

I have asked the Governor for this information and will communicate with my hon. Friend when I receive it.

Would not the Minister agree that all the available information points to an increased incidence in this disease? Would not he further agree that all the existing facilities for treatment are woefully inadequate?

I would rather wait until I have the information from the Governor before making any comment.
