§ 36. Colonel Lyons
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether steps have yet been taken to prepare, by means of a joint official and non-official committee, a five- or 10-year programme of social and economic betterment, covering all the territories and islands administered or controlled by the Governor of Aden.
§ Colonel Stanley
The first draft of such a programme has been prepared and is now under examination. The Governor proposes to appoint a committee representative of the principal interests in the Colony to examine it in detail.
