HC Deb 14 December 1955 vol 547 c1185
15. Mr. Tilney

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he is now in a position to make a statement about the composition of the Committee to inquire into the activities of the Cocoa Purchasing Company; and what are the Committee's terms of reference.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

The Gold Coast Government have not yet decided the composition and terms of reference of this Committee.

Mr. Tilney

Is my right hon. Friend aware that the friends of the Gold Coast were delighted with the news of the appointment of the Committee, but will my right hon. Friend stress to the Gold Coast Government the importance of announcing the terms of reference and the nature of the Committee so that it can get down to taking evidence as quickly as possible?

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

I am sure that they have that very much in mind.
