§ 33. Mr. Mathers
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he can state the date when a Report on progress under the Colonial Development and Welfare Act, 1940, will be laid on the Table of the House?
§ The Secretary of State for the Colonies (Colonel Oliver Stanley)
Yes, Sir. A copy of the Statutory Report under the Colonial Development and Welfare Act, 1940, will be laid on the Table of the House on Tuesday, 23rd February, and will be available to hon. Members in the Vote Office before the House rises on that day. A report by Sir Frank Stockdale on his work as Comptroller for Development and Welfare in the West Indies will also be available in the Vote Office at the same time.
§ Mr. Mathers
In view of the interest in these matters, will efforts be made by the Colonial Office to see that they are given wider publicity?
