HC Deb 27 October 1943 vol 393 c187
64. Mr. Riley

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether it is his intention to issue a report to Parliament on his recent visit to our African Colonies or, alternatively, whether he intends to take an early opportunity of making a statement?

Colonel Stanley

I do not think that either the nature or the duration of my tour lend themselves to a report to Parliament or to a formal statement. I shall be most happy, however, to place myself at the disposal of any hon. Members who would like me to give them informally my impressions as a result of my tour.

Mr. Riley

Is the right hon. and gallant Gentleman aware that great interest has been taken in his tour and that a meeting at which Members might be informed about it would be greatly appreciated?
