§ 60. Mr. Ridley
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the proposals made in the report on the financial position and further development of Nyasaland are under consideration; and whether it is proposed to take immediate steps to carry out any of the recommendations?
Mr. M. MacDonald
Yes, Sir. I have now received from the Governor of Nyasaland a preliminary statement of the Protectorate Government's attitude towards the recommendations in the Report. They are disposed to accept the majority of the recommendations, but a number of the more important proposals are still under consideration. I am expecting a further report from the Governor shortly.
§ Mr. Ridley
When will the right hon. Gentleman be in a position to state the proposals that it is intended to make?
I could not give any approximate date for that, but if the hon. Member will keep in touch with me, perhaps I can let him know when a question will elicit that answer.
