Poultry Scheme (Hansard, 7 March 1951)
HC Deb 07 March 1951 vol 485 c59W
74. Sir H. Williams

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he will make a statement about the future of the Gambia poultry scheme in view of the very small production so far achieved.

75. Sir W. Smithers

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if, in view of the cost involved and of the small results obtained, he will institute a review into the Gambia egg project.

Mr. Cook

As my right hon. Friend informed the House last Wednesday, he is awaiting fresh proposals from the Board of the Colonial Development Corporation on the future of the scheme. He will make a further statement when these have been received and considered.

82. Mr. Mott-Radclyffe

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he will state the quantity of feedingstuffs hitherto imported into Gambia for consumption on the Gambia Poultry Farm.

Mr. Cook

Yes. My right hon. Friend thinks it will be useful for the House to have this information in anticipation of the proposed debate. The answer is that 2,394 tons have been imported.
