HC Deb 15 May 1933 vol 278 c34W
Captain DOWER

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what steps, if any, are to be taken in the near future that will enable British West African Colonies to grant British cotton goods preferential treatment over Japanese in their markets?


Sierra Leone and the Gambia have for more than a year past granted such preferences. Nigeria and the Gold Coast are at present precluded by international instruments from so doing.
