HC Deb 22 May 1957 vol 570 c1225
76. Mr. Sorensen

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if it is proposed to continue the contributions to the Seychelles Copra Stabilisation Fund.

Mr. Profumo

No, Sir; at least not at present.

Mr. Sorensen

Does not the hon. Gentleman realise that this Fund is still urgently required?

Mr. Profumo

The Fund stands at the figure of £200,000. No payments have been made out of it since its inception in 1948.
