HC Deb 07 December 1908 vol 198 cc50-1

To ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether there are any distilleries of spirits in Southern Nigeria, or in any other of our West African territories; and whether, if any exist, they are owned by natives or Europeans.

(Answered by Colonel Seely.) I am not aware of the existence of any distilleries in the West African Colonies, but inquiry will be made of the local governments on this point.
