§ 90. Sir A. Herbert
asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations whether Newfoundland is now self-supporting; for how many years it has been self-supporting and what is the National Debt per head of population for Newfoundland, Canada and the United Kingdom, respectively.
§ Mr. P. Noel-Baker
I am sending the hon. Member a copy of a White Paper published in June, 1946, in which the financial and economic position of Newfoundland was fully explained. He will see that the revenue of the Newfoundland Government has exceeded its expenditure since 1941. The National Debt per head of the population of Newfoundland, Canada and the United Kingdom is as follows:—Newfoundland, approximately 218 dollars; Canada, 1,037 dollars; United Kingdom, £536.
