HC Deb 12 November 1952 vol 507 cc55-6W
91. Sir E. Keeling

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies why he is providing £35,000 for the passages, etc., of governors and other colonial officers as compared with £20,000 in 1951–52.

Mr. Lyttelton

The terms of office of a much greater number of colonial Governors were due to expire during the financial year 1952–3 than in the previous year and sufficient provision had to be made to cover their passages, the passages of their successors and those of any Governors involved in consequential moves.
