HC Deb 01 June 1938 vol 336 c2069W
Mr. de Rothschild

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies in which of the Colonies of the West Indies machinery for the determination of cost-of-living indices exists?

Mr. M. MacDonald

No regular machinery exists at present in the West Indian Colonies for the compilation of cost-of-living indices, but in some of them a considerable body of information on the subject has been accumulated as a result of special investigations from time to time.
