18. Mr. David Adams
asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether, in view of the growing destitution and unemployment in large areas of the West Indies, it is intended to use part of the colonial welfare and development grant for remedial purposes, or what other steps are proposed or being instituted?
§ Mr. George Hall
This matter is at present under active consideration, and I hope to be able to make a statement shortly.
§ Sir Stanley Reed
Does my hon. Friend agree that there is likely to be a very large demand for West Indian labour in connection with the construction of United States bases?
