APPENDIX A

C.D. & W. Assistance

In relation to its size and population, British Guiana has had more help under the Colonial Development and Welfare Acts than any other British dependency. Between the 1st April 1941 (when the first C.D. & W. Act came into force) and the 30th June 1956, direct grants and loans, grants from central allocations from which British Guiana benefits, and grants for research on behalf of the Colony have totalled £7,928,139, or more than sixteen pounds for every man, woman and child of the population at its present-day strength. Even this list does not include some regional schemes, such as that for the University College of the West Indies, from which British Guiana benefits. I have thought it of interest to list in detail all the schemes made, to show their wide range in scale and in purpose.
