COLONIAL DEVELOPMENT AND WELFARE ALLOCATIONS, 1955-60.

The following ,text of a telegram containing an Announcement by the
Secretary of State for the Colonies with respect to allocations of C. D. & W Funds
for the period 1955-60 is published for Lgeneral information:-
As is well known, the United Kingdom Government have made -.vailable
in the past substantial sums by way of grants and loans under C. D. & W. Acts
to supplement other sources of finance available for development of Colonial
Territories. The Colony of St. Vincent is now to have made available to
it over the next 5 years a New Allocation of 540,000. To this must be
added the money in the Colony's existing allocation which has not yet been
so committed to projects requiring C. D. & W. Assistance, or have been so
committed but has not been spent. This money will be, carried forward to
be available for the Colony in the new period. Taking this into account,
it will be possible for the Colony to draw on C.D. & W. Funds at a consider-
ably higher rate over the, 5-year period now beginning than over the past
10-year period. This is an indication of Her Majesty's Government's
intention to continue to assist the Development and Welfare of Colonial
Territories. The schemes for' which C. D. & W. Grants are: required in the
new period will of course have to t-e agreed with the Secretary of State,
and he has made it clear that he will give first priority to schemes which
promote economic development of tha Colony.
2. The New Allocations to the other colonies in the Windward Islands
are as follows:-Dominica 820,C00, Grenada 540,000 St. Lucia 1,130,000.
