§ 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.
§ Mr. J. Griffiths
Since the list of the Colonial Development Corporation's 287W undertakings is rather lengthy, I will, with permission, arrange for it to be circulated in the OFFICIAL REPORT. 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.
The following is the required information:
