§ MR. CATHCART WASON (Orkney and Shetland)
I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he has received and considered a petition from Chief Nana praying that he may be allowed to return to his own country; and whether, in view of the facts of the case, his petition will be granted.
§ THE UNDER-SECRETARY OF STATE TOR THE COLONIES (Mr. CHURCHILL, Manchester, N.W.)
The petition has been received. Lord Elgin has, on representations made to him before its receipt, asked the Governor of Southern Nigeria to report on the question of allowing Nana to be repatriated, and is awaiting Sir W. Egerton's reply.
