asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he will make a statement on the resignations that are about to take place from the Board of the Colonial Development Corporation.

My right hon. Friend has no information about any such impending resignations from the Board, nor, I have ascertained, has the chairman.

Will the Minister be mindful of these denials when the resignations take place?

I shall be interested to know that the party opposite happened to have information which was denied not only to His Majesty's Government but to the chairman of the Corporation.

Does it not seem rather serious that this information has come to some private Member and not to the Minister? Will he not make investigations?


asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies when the report of the Colonial Development Corporation will be available.

I am unable to give a definite date, but my right hon. Friend hopes that the publication of the report will take place very shortly.

When the report is published, will the right hon. Gentleman consult with the Leader of the House to ensure that full facilities are given to debate it?

What date does this report bring us up to? Will it be to the end of the year?
