HC Deb 20 December 1934 vol 296 c1335

asked the Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs whether he can now state what measures are being taken to carry out Sir Alan Pim's recommendations for the improvement of the economic situation in Bechuanaland and by what means the necessary expenditure will be found?

Sir VICTOR WARRENDER (Vice-Chamberlain of the Household)

I have been asked to reply. Funds for carrying out all these recommendations, except those relating to water supply, have already been provided either from the general revenue of the Protectorate which, as my hon. Friend is aware, is in receipt of a grant-in-aid from the United Kingdom Exchequer, or from the Colonial Development Fund. As regards the recommendations relating to water supply, my right hon. Friend hopes to be in a position to put forward an application to the Colonial Development Advisory Committee very shortly.
