HC Deb 13 July 1949 vol 467 c411
17. Mr. A. Edward Davies

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the changes in the 1946 Constitution and the pattern of local government recommended by the Commission of Inquiry into the disturbances in the Gold Coast during February and March, 1948, have been implemented; and what is the present position.

Mr. Rees-Williams

No, Sir. The representative Committee of Africans, which was appointed by the Governor to examine the proposals made by the Commission of Inquiry, is still in session.

Mr. Davies

Can my hon. Friend say when he hopes to make a further report on the progress made?

Mr. Rees-Williams

I am told that the Commission is nearing the end of its inquiries. I could not give any specific date for the end of them.
