§ Mr. Braine
As regards grants and loans to the Federal Government of Rhodesia and Nyasaland, I would refer the hon. Member to the reply I gave to a Question by the hon. Member for Greenock (Dr. Mabon) on 13th April. The £15 million loan for the Kariba Dam project made in 1955 by the Colonial Development Corporation has so far been disbursed as follows:—
£ 1956 750,000 1957 1,300,000 1958 900,000 1961 6,300,000
No Exchequer grants or loans have been made to the Government of Southern Rhodesia, but the Colonial Development Corporation made them a loan of £1 million in 1956–57 for African housing.
