§ 8. Mr. Bossom
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how many acres have been reserved for the poultry scheme in Gambia; and how many have so far been cleared.
§ Mr. J. Griffiths
Approximately 10,000 acres have been leased to the Colonial Development Corporation for this scheme, by agreement with the Gambia Government. As regards the second part of the Question, I would refer the hon. Member to the Corporation, who are carrying out the project.
§ Mr. Bossom
Will the Minister state approximately how much land has been cleared, and whether it will produce the food that is required?
