HC Deb 29 October 1947 vol 443 cc861-2
40. Mr. Rankin

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if satisfactory health and unemployment insurance schemes have yet been introduced in Trinidad.

Mr. Rees-Williams

No, Sir, but the Governor has recently assured me that he is doing his best to hasten the drawing up of suitable schemes on these two important and complex matters.

Mr. Rankin

Will my hon. Friend keep before him the fact that the Unemployment Insurance Committee was set up in 1943 and many people are hoping that action will soon be forthcoming?
