HC Deb 15 April 1948 vol 449 c92W
Sir P. Hannon

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he will encourage, through the Central Office of Information, widespread publicity on the opportunities for rural and urban industrial development in Cyprus, with a view to investment of British capital in that Colony; and if an early report on the economic potential of Cyprus can be made available.

Mr. McNeil

I have been asked to reply. If the hon. Member will let me have any particular suggestions of this nature which he may have in mind, my right hon. Friend will be glad to consider them. With regard to the second part of the Question my right hon. Friend does not at the moment consider it necessary to call for a special report. As the hon. Member no doubt knows, there has already been published a ten-year Development Plan for the Colony.
