HC Deb 17 June 1953 vol 516 cc64-5W
Mr. Braine

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether, notwithstanding the financial benefits which will accrue to Nyasaland under Federation, Her Majesty's Government, with its continued responsibility for that territory, will continue to assist as far as possible its economic and social development.

Mr. Lyttelton

Yes. Her Majesty's Government have recently made a further allocation under the Colonial Development and Welfare Acts of £500,000 to Nyasaland, to assist with an expanding programme of capital development in economic and social projects. This sum, together with another additional £500,000 allocated a year ago, brings the total Colonial Development and Welfare allocation to Nyasaland to £3.872,000.
