HC Deb 31 July 1946 vol 426 c931
29. Mr. Rankin

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies in which of the West African Colonies special representation is given to private trading monopolies in the Legislative Council.

Mr. George Hall

No individual firm is represented on any West African Legislative Council but all four Legislatures include at least one member nominated by the Governor, usually on the advice of such bodies as any local chamber of commerce or mines, to represent commercial interests generally.
