19. Mr. Creech Jones
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he can now state the schemes in the West Indies on which the £350,000 now authorised will be spent?
Mr. M. MacDonald
As the reply is long and contains a number of figures I will, with the hon. Member's permission, circulate it in the OFFICIAL REPORT.
§ Following is the reply:
|Reconditioning of drainage in certain areas in the coastal belt; reconditioning of roads; reconditioning of central hospital and alms-houses and certain other buildings in Georgetown||52,500|
|Construction of a road from Belize to Cayo and certain feeder roads||45,000|
|Anti-malarial measures, reconditioning of roads and reconditioning of land for land settlement in the country districts||82,500|
|Minor public works, public health and soil erosion measures||10,750|
|Improvement of roads and rivers and swamp drainage||27,810|
§ The schemes mentioned above have been approved. Others are now under consideration.
