§ 9. Mr. Turton
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether, in view of the announcement of the Governor of Nigeria at the 23rd Session of the Legislative Council that the composition of many trade unions in Nigeria had been upon a faulty basis, he will arrange for assistance to be given to the workers in Nigeria towards the reconstitution of the trade unions upon a proper basis.
§ Mr. georģe Hall
Yes, Sir. Two men with wide trade union experience in this country have just been selected for appointment as additional labour officers in Nigeria.
§ Mr. Turton
Does the Minister agree that the trade unions want reconstituting? Is he satisfied with a system where in some trade unions in West Africa employers are presidents of unions?
