HC Deb 15 March 1939 vol 345 c432W
Mr. Grenfell

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he will consider the advisability of quarterly reports being issued on the work to date of the Colonial Development Fund?

Mr. M. MacDonald

A full report on the work of the Colonial Development Fund is published annually. To substitute for this four quarterly reports a year would involve additional expense and put considerable extra work upon the staff concerned. I do not think that the change would be justified
