asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he is now in a position to make a statement on what action he is prepared to take to implement the recommendations of the Evans Report regarding British Honduras and British Guiana.

Mr. Creech Jones:

I made such a statement in reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Dagenham (Mr. Parker) in December last. The recommendations have been further studied both here and in the Colony. Some of the preliminary investigational work which was announced has already been done, by the Government and by the Colonial Development Corporation, and plans are well advanced for more. This work was recommended as the first essential stage.
