41. Mr. Creech Jones
asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether any statement will be issued setting out the scheme submitted by the Colonial Governments under the Colonial Development and Welfare Act?
§ The Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies (Mr. Harold Macmillan)
A return of schemes made under the Colonial Development and Welfare Act in the period ended 31st March, 1941, was presented to the House on 16th December. Periodical statements regarding the progress made in granting assistance to Colonial Governments under the Act will no doubt be issued in the future, but it is too early to say at what intervals they could most conveniently be produced.
Mr. Creech Jones
Will the Minister publish the schemes submitted by Governments and not those adopted under the Act?
