Welfare Schemes.

Part of Oral Answers to Questions — West Indies. – in the House of Commons on 29th July 1942.

Alert me about debates like this

In addition to the above schemes, the Comptroller has made a number of small grants, amounting to £1,600, including prizes to stimulate interest in practical handicrafts and for competitions among allotment holders and in schools, purchase of books for schools, libraries and literary clubs, etc. Generally speaking, these schemes are not administered by the Comptroller for Development and Welfare but by the Colonial Government concerned. As regards the functions of the Comptroller, I would invite my hon. Friend's attention to the reply by my predecessor to a Question by the hon. Member for Shipley (Mr. Creech Jones) on 8th October, 1941.
