MR. NORMAN (Wolverhampton, S.)

To ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether his attention has been called to communications which have been received at the Colonial Office from Canadian official authorities regarding the future control of the nickel mines in the Sudbury District of Ontario; and, if so, will he say whether any replies, and if so, what, have been made to such communications; and whether His Majesty's Government proposes to take any steps to facilitate and control the use of this nickel for Imperial purposes.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Lyttelton.) The communications to which the hon. Member refers were duly forwarded to the Admiralty, and the inquiry should be addressed to the representative of that Department.
