HC Deb 20 January 1943 vol 386 cc246-7W
Mr. Riley

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he is now in a position to make a statement as to the scope and nature of the work which is being done in the West Indies under the provisions of the Colonial Development and Welfare Act, 1940; and whether he can issue a statement setting forth the number, nature and estimated finance of the schemes which have already been approved?

Colonel Stanley

A general report on the operation of the Colonial Development and Welfare Act will, I hope, be issued as a White Paper early next week. In addition I have received a report from the Comptroller for Development and Welfare in the West Indies which will be published shortly and be available for members in the Vote Office.
