62. Mr. DUNDAS WHITE
asked the Prime Minister, whether he will give this House an opportunity of expressing an opinion on the Bill introduced in the Legislature of the Colony of the Gold Coast, intituled an Ordinance to make provision 1501 as to the grant of exclusive rights for the extraction of oil from palm fruits, set out in Parliamentary Paper (Cd. 6512), which, even in its amended form, proposes to give the Governor power to grant monopolies independently of any question of patent rights?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
The Bill in its amended form meets, I believe, with general acceptance, but any further representations in regard to it which may be made to the Secretary of State for the Colonies will receive careful consideration.
