HC Deb 13 December 1950 vol 482 c1130
36. Mr. Sorensen

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he has considered the protest of the Togoland Union to the United Nations Trusteeship Council in view of the objection of the registration of Ewe people for the Gold Coast elections; and if he is now aware of the reason for the absence of five of the 17 members from the Anglo-French Consultative Committee meeting.

Mr. J. Griffiths

These matters are being investigated by the Governor and I am awaiting his report.

Mr. Sorensen

Is my right hon. Friend aware that there has been considerable delay in this matter, and that I put a question down some months ago, was promised a reply, and have not yet received it?

Mr. Griffiths

This is a very difficult matter. I do not think that there has been delay. This question must be considered very carefully. I certainly do not want to delay a final decision and I will do my best to expedite the matter.
