§ Mr. Lennox-Boyd
Progress is being made with the developments of which I informed the hon. Member in my reply on 7th December, 1955. The housing programme, with assistance from the colonial development and welfare fund, is proceeding according to plan. There has been marked expansion in the tourist industry, and in trade generally. Though Spanish frontier restrictions have continued, the volume of imports into Gibraltar was nearly £2 million more in 1956 than in 1954, with a corresponding increase in public revenue.
