Paul Joseph James Martin (Minister of National Health and Welfare)

Liberal

Mr. Martin:

Yes. The national health grants program has contributed $54,000 toward the expansion of diagnostic laboratory services in Prince Edward Island.

In order to decentralize the work of the provincial laboratory, branch laboratories have been created in eight hospitals throughout the province and trained technicians have been placed there to carry out medical and public health laboratory work. This organization will provide a much quicker and more reliable service to public health officials, as well as to hospitals.
