HC Deb 15 May 1952 vol 500 cc156-7W
126. Mr. Beswick

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations when the committee, set up under his chairmanship, following the Commonwealth Finance Ministers' Conference, to consider the problem of economic development of the Commonwealth, is expected to complete its report; and whether that report will be published.

Mr. J. Foster

Commonwealth Governments are still considering the interim report made by the Working Party at the conclusion of its first series of meetings, and a date has not yet been fixed for the resumption of meetings. I cannot anticipate the decisions of Commonwealth Governments on the publication of any reports of the Working Party.
