HC Deb 22 April 1948 vol 449 c161W
Commander Noble

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what amount of dollars had to be made available to the West Indies, and to Jamaica and to Bermuda, in particular, during 1947.

Sir S. Cripps

The net drain on our reserves on account of the West Indies was about £27½ million in 1947. I am not prepared to give figures for individual Colonies.
