Lt me here say a word on the sub

But at the risk of being dubbed as
absolutely lacking In patriotism, I
should like to point out that In Ihs
first place the resources we bad at
our disposal In our own colonial ter
ritory In tropical and sub-tropical
Africa, little exploited as thy then
were, would have amply sufficed for
our commercial needs and colonising
capacities though possibly not for our
