asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies what results there have been from the special steps which were promised by the then Secretary of State, in reply to questions on 6th July, 1921, and 28th February of this year, would be taken in order to bring about a resumption of the publication of the Annual Report of St. Lucia, one of the West India Islands, no Report having been received since that for 1915–16?

A Report has been received for 1921 and is about to be published. The acting administrator stated in forwarding this Report that he regretted that he had been unable to complete it at an earlier date because the statistical figures for 1921 had only recently become available. Steps have been taken with a view to securing that future Reports are furnished as soon as possible, but for reasons of economy I do not propose to call for Reports for the period during and shortly after the War in respect of which none have been prepared.
