18. Dr. Morgan
asked the Undersecretary of State for the Colonies how many houses had been built by the Government of Trinidad, British West Indies, up to February, 1939; whether the local municipality of Port of Spain, in spite of the absence of statutory powers, built nearly 40 houses; whether this state of affairs has continued; and what progress has been made on any Government housing scheme in the last two years?
§ Mr. George Hall
My Noble Friend is making inquiry of the officer administering the Government of Trinidad as to the exact number of houses built in the periods specified. I will communicate with my hon. Friend when a report has been received.
Is there not an information bureau at the Colonial Office, so that we may get our information there and not by constant reference to the Governors?
