§ 58. Mr. Dodds-Parker
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether, in view of the fact that the Owen Falls Scheme will cost double the original estimate, he will appoint a committee to examine the estimated cost of £27 million 152W for the Kafue Power Scheme before placing contracts.
§ Mr. Lyttelton
I have not yet received the report on the Kafue Power Scheme and the Governor's comments upon it: but I can assure my hon. Friend that the estimates of expenditure will be most carefully examined before any contracts are placed.
