2. Miss Ward
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he has yet considered the report of the committee appointed to investigate the problem of trade unions in West Africa; and when he will make it available to the House.
§ Mr. J. Griffiths
The primary function of the group which visited Nigeria was to assist by their experience and advice in the improvement of industrial relations. They have made no formal report, but have had full discussions with me and the Governor, and two of them have returned to Nigeria to continue their work. I hope to give the House further information when various consultations now in progress are more advanced.
§ Mr. Griffiths
No. When I announced the appointment of these four people to go to Nigeria I indicated that I thought they would serve a more useful purpose by not making a formal report but by having discussions with everybody concerned.
