§ Mr. R. Robinson
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies (1) what immediate steps are being taken to give effect to the recommendations of the Anglo-American Committee for the settlement of Jewish refugees in British Guiana;
(2)whether the understanding with the Anglo-American Committee precludes the entry of settlers to the interior of British Guiana other than those approved of and settled by that committee?
Mr. M. MacDonald
As I stated in my reply to a. question by the hon. Member for York (Mr. C. Wood) on the 26th May, I understand that the appropriate refugee organisation in this country is actively engaged in considering, in conjunction with the United States Committee, detailed proposals for a scheme of refugee settlement. Pending the receipt of these proposals, I do not feel able to consider any other schemes for settlement within the Colony.
