§ Mr. Clark Hutchison
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what progress has been made by the Government 140W of Aden in collating, preserving and photographing the early papers and documents, held in the Secretariat, concerning the history and development of Aden.
§ Mr. Sandys
Preparatory work on the preservation of the archives has begun and protective boxes have been obtained for the safe keeping of the most valuable papers and documents. This week the Aden Legislative Council will consider financial provisions for housing the archives in the new museum.
A decision on the procedure for photographing the documents has still to be taken.
