§ 24. Mr. G. P. Stevens
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how many chiefs have recently been de-stooled in the Gold Coast; and how this number compares with the previous comparable period.
My right hon. Friend has asked the Gold Coast Government to provide this information and will write to the hon. Member when it has been received.
§ Lieut.-Commander Gurney Braithwaite
Can the Minister tell the House whether the word "de-stooled" has any official significance? Is it the process recently followed by three ex-Ministers?
