HC Deb 27 July 1937 vol 326 cc2889-90W
Mr. Riley

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he is aware that on the plantations and timber concessions in the Cameroons under British mandate 54 accidents, of which 16 were fatal, are recorded in the report presented by the British Government to the League of Nations; and can he state what compensation, if any, was paid to the dependants of the 16 persons who were killed?

Mr. Ormsby-Gore

I have seen the report to which the hon. Member refers. I have no information beyond that given in the report, but I will cause inquiry to be made.
