§ 72. Mr. Gallacher
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies for what purpose a Bill for the acquisition of land in the Protectorate of Sierra Leone has been presented to the Legislative Council; what reason there is for taking new powers at this moment; what opposition the Bill has met with; what progress it has made in the Protectorate Assembly; and whether, in view of the opposition by the people affected, the Bill will now be abandoned.
Mr. Creech Jones
I invite my hon. Friend's attention to my reply of 19th November to a question by my hon. Friend the Member for East Harrow (Mr. Skinnard) on this subject. I will communicate with him when the Acting Governor's report has been received.
