HC Deb 18 May 1943 vol 389 c954W
Mr. Mathers

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he will give particulars to the latest convenient date of the sums which, having been approved for development in the West Indies, have actually been expended?

Colonel Stanley

I assume that the hon. Member has in mind schemes which have been made in connection with the various West Indian Colonies under the Colonial Development and Welfare Act, 1940. The figures for these schemes up to 31st March, 1943, are:

Schemes approved 2,228,178
Expenditure 367,841
