asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what is the reason for the heavy drop in the revenue and expenditure of British Guiana from 1941 onwards when compared with previous years as shown in appendix 6 of the Blue Book on the Colonial Empire 1939–47, Cmd. 7167.
I am obliged to the hon. and gallant Gentleman. I regret that incorrect figures of revenue and expenditure for the years 1941 to 1946 in British Guiana and also in British Honduras were shown in Appendix 6 to the Command Paper. A correction slip has been published, and I have arranged for a copy to be sent to the hon. and gallant Member.
