HC Deb 03 May 1950 vol 474 cc1662-3
6. Mr. Dodds-Parker

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what progress has been made in the acquisition of a sports ground for colonial students in London.

Mr. J. Griffiths

The planning committee have prepared a scheme for a sports club in London for all colonials and their friends, including colonial students. This has my wholehearted approval. The committee are now considering the question of raising funds.

Mr. Dodds-Parker

Will the Minister try to get facilities from existing sports clubs, which would be even more preferable?

Mr. Griffiths

I should be very glad to consider that suggestion, and I will look into it.
