HC Deb 22 June 1950 vol 476 c162W
Mr. Sorensen

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how many of the directors of the Colonial Development Corporation have had experience obtained in colonial territories as required by Section 2 of the Overseas Resources Development Act, 1948; and how many committees have been appointed to study the circumstances and requirements of the inhabitants as laid down in the Act.

Mr. J. Griffiths

The majority of directors have had experience in colonial territories. The appointment of committees is at the discretion of the Corporation. So far no committees have been set up, and I understand that the Corporation wish to gain more experience of the territories in which they are operating before they establish this formal machinery.
