§ 40. Major Legge-Bourke
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what amounts were involved in the destruction of food left behind in Nigeria by U.S. troops; and why better use was not made of these supplies.
§ Mr. George Hall
I have no information about this matter, but I will make inquiries from the Governor and let the hon. and gallant Member know as soon as I get a reply.
§ Mr. Godfrey Nicholson
There are allegations that large quantities of military stores in West African Colonies are being destroyed or going to be destroyed or dumped into the sea. Will the right hon. Gentleman direct his attention to that?
