§ 41 Mr. HORRABIN
asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies if he is aware that an ordinance, entitled the appointment and deposition of chiefs ordinance, has recently been enacted in Nigeria.; and whether the governor is required to consult His Majesty's Government in any way before exercising the far-reaching powers regarding Native chiefs and rulers?
§ Mr. LUNN
With the approval of the Secretary of State for the Colonies, such an ordinance has recently been enacted in Nigeria. The Governor is not required to consult His Majesty's Government 846 before exercising the powers conferred upon him under the ordinance, but he would doubtless, consult the Secretary of State in any particular case in which he might feel in need of guidance.
