P.A. WELLINGTON, Tuesday. Britain's practical assistance to her colonies in the form of capital investment was Qited by Sir Cosmo Parkinson, former Permanent UnderSecretary of. State for Dominion Affairs, and later for the Colonies, as an indication of her keen desire to see her colonial possessions expand to the utmost. He said that under the Colonial Development and Welfare Act, 1940, increased capital grants were authorised for the colonies and £120,000,000 sterling had been voted wholeheartedly by Parliament for colonial development, including research and education, apart altogether from the economic side. This was to be spread over a period of ten years. Before self-government could be conferred it was important that colonies should be raised to a status that they themselves could maintain without outside help. "This policy on Britain's part must have the effect of bringing the Empire much closer together," said Sir Cosmo, "and the war has already done that to a marked degree."
