§ Mr. Swingler
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies why it took from 11th March to 18th July for his Department to deal with an inquiry from the hon. Member for Newcastle-under-Lyme about the administration of schools in the Seychelles.
§ Mr. Profumo
The reasons for the time taken to reply to the hon. Member's letter were explained in my reply in which I apologised for the delay.
