HC Deb 01 December 1952 vol 508 cc115-6W
73. Mr. Lee

asked the Minister of Materials what steps he proposes to take to assist Colonial Governments to exploit their raw material deposits.

Sir A. Salter

As the publication of the White Paper on the Volta River Aluminium Scheme shows, the Government are anxious to encourage worthwhile and sound development of Colonial raw material deposits. What can and should be done must be considered carefully in relation to the position of each raw material.
