HC Deb 21 May 1942 vol 380 c364
60. Mr. Riley

asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he can now give a list of the schemes now put into operation under the Colonial Development and Welfare Act and the particular Colonies to which these schemes apply?

Mr. Harold Macmillan

Yes, Sir. I could readily prepare for the House a statement on the lines of the return which was made last year under Section 1 (4) of the Colonial Development and Welfare Act, 1940. My Noble Friend is, however, proposing to include such a schedule of the schemes which are in operation under the Act, in a more comprehensive report, reviewing the progress which has been made since the Act came into force. I trust that my hon. Friend will be prepared to wait a short time until this fuller report has been completed.
