§ 41. Mr. HORRABIN
asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he has yet received any report from the Governor of Nigeria upon the advisability of punishing persons in that Colony by putting them in the stocks?
§ Dr. SHIELS
No, Sir. The Acting-Governor will no doubt have felt it desirable to consult his legal, administrative and other advisers, and some little time may be expected to elapse before his considered views on this subject can be received.
