HC Deb 14 June 1939 vol 348 c1304
60. Sir Nicholas Grattan-Doyle

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether, in order to encourage the colonisation of British Guiana, he will cause an invitation under the auspices of the Crown Agents to be issued to the British investing public to form a joint stock enterprise designed to provide the capital required for developing the natural resources of the interior of British Guiana, under a trading charter granted and controlled by Parliament?

Sir T. Inskip

As my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for the Colonies said in reply to a question on 7th June, pending the receipt of proposals which are now under consideration by the appropriate Refugee Organisations for the settlement of refugees in British Guiana, His Majesty's Government do not feel able to consider any other schemes for settlement within the Colony.
