HC Deb 06 April 1922 vol 152 cc2417-8

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies has yet presented his Report upon his recent official visit to the British West Indian Colonies; and, if so, whether he will arrange to have this Report printed and laid upon the Table of the House at an early date?
