§ Mr. F. Noel-Baker
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies, how many industrial undertakings in Cyprus are owned by Greek Cypriots and how many by Turkish; and what proportion of the industry of the island these figures represent.
§ Mr. Lennox-Boyd
It has always been a policy of the Cyprus Government not to differentiate between communities in economic matters, and there are no data16W to show how many of the total of 1,165 industrial establishments employing five or more persons are owned by Greek Cypriots and how many by Turkish Cypriots. It is, however, believed, that the greater proportion, probably over 90 per cent., is owned by Greek Cypriots.
