HC Deb 05 August 1907 vol 179 c1532

On behalf of the hon. Member for North-West Lanarkshire, I beg to ask the Undersecretary of State for the Colonies whether any Report, with regard to the problems of railway construction in Northern Nigeria, has yet been received from Sir Percy Girouard; and, if so, whether he can lay the Report upon the Table or make any statement on the subject.


Sir Percy Girouard's Report has been received, and the question of laying it upon the Table will be considered. I have private notice of a similar question from the hon. Member for Clitheroe, and if the hon. Member has no objection I propose to make a short statement in reply to both at the conclusion of questions today.
