HC Deb 21 March 1951 vol 485 cc286-8W
79. Mr. G. Williams

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he will give details of the other 50 schemes for colonial development besides the Gambia scheme which are in existence.

For further details of the individual schemes, I would invite the hon. Member to await the Report and Accounts of the Corporation for 1950, which are to be published in the near future.
