HC Deb 28 January 1949 vol 460 c187W
Mr. Piratin

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he will now state the terms to be offered to Americans for survey work in the Colonies, taking into account payment by his Department and such subsidies and emoluments which applicants are to receive in the United States.

Mr. Creech Jones

The proposals mentioned in my reply to the hon. Member for Altrincham (Mr. Erroll) on 7th December are still the subject of discussion with the United States authorities and no rates of pay have yet been fixed.
