HC Deb 24 March 1943 vol 387 c1643W
Mr. S. O. Davies

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he will appoint a controller of development, with a view of preparing schemes for the improved welfare and development of West Africa along the lines of the work of Sir Frank Stockdale in the West Indies?

Colonel Stanley

I would refer my hon. Friend to the remarks which I made on this subject in replying to the Debate on Colonial Administration in the West Indies on 16th March, to which, at present, I have nothing to add.
