§ Mr. Sorensen
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if the workshops and industrial undertakings established during the war to meet military needs in West Africa are to be retained by or transferred to the Colonial Governments and utilised by them for civil and industrial purposes.
§ Colonel Stanley
Undertakings established or extended by Colonial Governments during the war to meet Service needs will remain under civil control after the war. No general decision in principle has yet been made on the undertakings established by the Services for their own requirements, and I am asking that this256W question may in the first instance be considered at the next meeting of the West African War Council.
