    Abstract

    IT is announced that the Secretary of State for the Colonies has appointed a Committee “to formulate practical proposals for submission to the Colonial Governments to give effect to the resolution for the Colonial Office Conference on the subject of Colonial Agricultural Scientific and Research Services.” These proposals are to “include a scheme, based on contributions to a common pool, for the creation of a Colonial Agricultural Scientific and Research Service available for the requirements of the whole Colonial Empire for the support of institutions needed for that purpose, and for the increase of research and study facilities in connection with specialist services of the Colonies generally.” The committee is thus constituted: Lord Lovat, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs (chairman), Mr. W. Ormsby-Gore, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies; Sir Graeme Thomson, Governor of Nigeria; Mr. A. S. Jelf, Colonial Secretary, Jamaica; Mr. O. G. R.
