HC Deb 07 July 1960 vol 626 cc47-8W
Mr. G. M. Thomson

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies when he expects to receive the report by Mr. M. D. ffrench-Mullen on the jute experimental scheme in British Guiana.

Mr. Iain Macleod

A full account by Mr. ffrench-Mullen of the experiments in the cultivation, harvesting and retting of jute in British Guiana is being published in "Tropical Science", the quarterly journal of the Tropical Products Insti- tute. The first half appeared in Volume I, No. 4, 1959, and the concluding part will appear in the next issue, which is to be published shortly. I am arranging for copies of both issues to be placed in the Library.
