HC Deb 16 February 1955 vol 537 c58W
100. Mr. Sorensen

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what further consideration has been given to the pos sibility of immigration from British Caribbean Colonial Territories into British Honduras, particularly in view of the recommendation of a Commission to that effect.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

The measures which are being taken for the development of British Honduras with the assistance of Colonial Development and Welfare funds will create opportunities for a much larger population than the present one. There are, however, preliminary investigations, now being carried out, which must be completed, and the present population must be given full opportunities of guiding and taking part in the development of the territory.
