The damning report on the working and living conditions in the colonies was ironically commissioned by the British government and the findings delivered in 1940 they were only made public at the end of the Second World War in 1945. Seventy years later, the report is re-presented with an updated introduction by Professor Denis Benn, who ably contextualizes the findings informed not only by his scholarly work but also as a witness to the many labour disputes and agitation for better working and living conditions for the poor and working class citizens of the region.
