§ 6. Mr. Dodds-Parker
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the publication of colonial and Departmental annual reports can be expedited; and if he is aware, for example, that the Coffee Research and Experimental Station in Tanganyika has only just published its 1950 report.
§ Mr. Lyttelton
The annual or bienniel reports on Colonial Territories are usually published between six and 15 months after the end of the period reviewed. I recognise how desirable it is that these reports should be published as early as possible, and every effort is and will be made to that end; but there are many practical difficulties. Departmental annual reports are published by colonial Governments.
