HC Deb 09 March 1949 vol 462 c1171
41. Mr. H. D. Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he will give the names of members of the regional colonial development corporations and regional advisers, so far appointed, with their relevant experience.

Mr. Creech Jones

This is a matter for the Colonial Development Corporation and I understand that the Corporation have already informed my hon. Friend of the names of those appointments which have so far been publicly announced.

Mr. Hughes

Is my right hon. Friend aware that the last announcement on this matter was made in August last year? Since then a large number of appointments have been made, and is there any reason why the names of those gentlemen should not be made public before the annual Report of the Corporation?

Mr. Creech Jones

It is very probable that they will be included in the annual Report of the Corporation, but the names are published locally.
