HC Deb 20 June 1951 vol 489 c47W
1. Mr. T. Reid

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if, in view of the proposals to decentralise the administration of the Colonial Development Corporation, he will consider placing on its managing bodies in the Colonies some of their local administrative and technical servants and local unofficial persons of exceptional merit for such membership, in order to secure essential knowledge of local conditions before schemes are adopted and implemented.

Mr. Dugdale

Matters of internal organisation are really for the Colonial Development Corporation. I can, however, assure my hon. Friend that the Corporation have the particular point he raises very much in mind, and I would refer him to paragraph 4 of the Corporation's latest annual report.
