HC Deb 18 May 1949 vol 465 c407
13. Mr. Dumpleton

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies when the Report on the Welfare of Amerindians in British Guiana which was laid before the Legislative Council on 2nd February last will be available in this country.

Mr. Creech Jones

The Governor is forwarding copies and when they arrive I will let my hon. Friend have one.

Mr. Dumpleton

Is my right hon. Friend aware that this Report and the scheme of the Commissioner of the Interior were submitted to the Governor over 12 months ago? Why have they been withheld from publication for so long?

Mr. Creech Jones

The information I have was that the Report was laid on 2nd February in British Guiana.
