HC Deb 31 October 1906 vol 163 c1100
MR. LONSDALE (Armagh, Mid.)

I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether any decision has yet been arrived at by the Government in regard to railway extension in Nigeria, and whether he can make any announcement on the subject.


No, Sir; but a definite statement of railway policy both in Southern and Northern Nigeria will be made as soon as the Secretary of State is in a position to do so.


When will a decision be come to?


I hope it will be announced by Christmas, but I cannot give any definite pledge.
