HC Deb 12 March 1930 vol 236 c1317

asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether his attention has been drawn to the fact that, during the recent industrial dispute in the Gambia, the Government permitted the use of a school building for a meeting of the shipowners' association while refusing similar facilities to the Bathurst trade union; and whether he will give instructions that such differential treatment be avoided in future?


My Noble Friend has not received any information on the allegation in question, but will inquire, So far as I am aware the school buildings in Bathurst are small and would not be suitable for a mass meeting.
