58. Mr. Sorensen

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he is aware of protest meetings held recently in the rural districts of Sierra Leone concerning the contents of Sessional Paper No. 2 and the report of the District Commissioner; and whether he will publish the details of the Sessional Paper?

Sir A. Lambert Ward

The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative, by my right hon. Friend is aware that there have been criticisms in the Sierra Leone Press. The Sessional Paper referred to has been published by the Government of Sierra Leone, and my right hon. Friend will arrange for a copy to be placed in the Library of the House.

Mr. Sorensen

Will the Minister make inquiries from the authorities of Sierra Leone whether protest meetings and other demonstrations have not taken place in recent times?

Sir A. Lambert Ward

I will ask my right hon. Friend, and perhaps he will communicate with the hon. Member.
