HC Deb 26 May 1924 vol 174 cc30-1
58. Mr. J. HARRIS

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he proposes to sanction the ordinance which has been introduced into the Gold Coast Colony at the instance of parties interested in the local diamond mining industry, and which prevents the winning and selling of diamonds by the native inhabitants of that Colony?


The ordinance to which the hon. Member refers has not yet reached the Secretary of State. When it does, he will give due consideration to the point which the hon. Member has raised.


May I present the hon. Gentleman with a copy of the ordinance?
