§ Sir R. Young
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether, having regard to the great importance of our Crown Colonies, he will consider the possibility of setting up a committee of both Houses of Parliament to review the Annual Reports of each Colony and deal with matters affecting the development of their vast resources and the well-being of the inhabitants?
§ Sir T. Inskip
I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given by my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister to the hon. and gallant Member for Nuneaton (Lieut.-Commander Fletcher) on 12th June.
§ Mr. De Chair
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether any decision has yet been reached on the question of setting up a committee of all parties in the House to keep the affairs of the Colonial Empire under continuous and vigorous review?
