HC Deb 30 March 1925 vol 182 c922

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether any of the Dominions or Crown Colonies have taken advantage of the special terms of financial assistance provided by the Imperial Conference, 1923; and what schemes, if any, have been received from the Overseas Governments for development by means of this assistance?


Several applications have been received for assistance under the terms of Section 2 of the Trade Facilities Act, 1924, which was framed to carry out the scheme accepted by the Imperial Economic Conference, 1923; general agreement as to principle has been reached in the case of two schemes, but the final details have not yet been settled, and therefore I am unable to give particulars. The other applications are still under consideration.
