The chief executive officer of the Board should be a whole-time experienced medical officer with public health qualifications. He would have under his direct control the necessary staff of sanitary inspectors, vaccinators, etc., and would be generally responsible to the Board for the smooth running of all its activities. In addition he would be responsible for the administration of any central hospitals maintained by the Board. The question of malaria control is so closely connected with health on the plantations that we consider each Board should also employ at least one malariologist who would work under the chief medical officer's supervision. The Boards should meet at regular intervals and, in some cases, it might be advantageous for these meetings to take place at different places chosen to enable the members to see what is being done in various plantations and to judge of the progress of their own schemes. The Board should receive full accounts of the work done since its last meeting and consider proposals for future work. On these it would give decisions and sanction expenditure. It would consider cases of default against its rules and orders and sanction prosecutions where necessary.
