HC Deb 29 July 1958 vol 592 cc100-1W
63. Mr. Tilney

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how much since the end of the war Sierra Leone has spent on capital development projects; what proportion has been found from the United Kingdom and Sierra Leone resources, respectively; and what is the amount and respective percentages for the same period for British Guiana.

Mr. Profumo

Between 1947 and the end of 1957 the Sierra Leone Government spent some £21.7 million on development projects, of which 34.5 per cent. came from C.D. & W. funds and loans raised on the London market, and the balance from local sources. Figures for British Guiana are not readily available, but I am consulting the Governor and will write to my hon. Friend.
