§ 37. Mr. HAYCOCK (for Mr. LOVAT-FRASER)
asked the Under-Secretary of 2228 State for the Colonies what action the Colonial Office proposes to take on the report of the Aba commission of inquiry with reference to the provincial and native courts in Nigeria?
§ Dr. SHIELS
It is expected that the observations of the Government of Nigeria on the findings of the Commission of Inquiry into the disturbances of December last at Aba and elsewhere in South Eastern Nigeria will be available in about a fortnight. When they have been considered a statement will be made as to the decision arrived at.
