These printed booklets were produced by the British Government for each of their overseas possessions and were originally based on the Blue Books*. They contain summaries of statistics and activities for the Colony and Dependencies over the relevant period. Production of the reports was suspended during World War II. The last annual report was produced in 1949 and thereafter until 1975 they were biennial reports. The reports were illustrated with black and white photographs from 1947 onwards.

Period Covered: 1846 to 1938; and 1946 to 1974/75. Status: Incomplete
