§ 45. Mr. Godman Irvine
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies when work will start on a survey of the natural resources of Fiji.
§ Mr. Sandys
The report of the Burns Commission of 1959 provided a thorough basic survey of the natural resources of Fiji. This has since been supplemented by soil and other surveys and by studies of the potential for development in all areas. The Development Plan for 1964–68 was drawn up on the basis of this work.
