– in the House of Commons at 12:00 am on 14th December 1949.
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what sum has been given, or promised, to Malta by Britain since the war; what proportion of the money has been used, up to date, to promote economic self-sufficiency in the island; and what proportion has been spent on recurrent routine expenditure and consumption goods.
Mr. Creech Jones:
As the House is aware, I am arranging for the publication of a paper on the recent discussions with the Malta Government about financial and economic assistance. The paper will be published shortly and I hope that the information contained in it will answer the hon. Member's queries.
