HC Deb 23 November 1939 vol 353 cc1445-6W
Mr. Creech Jones

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he will now remove the deportation restriction in respect to the ex-Awujale of Jebu Ode, in view of the long operation of the order, and the fact that his chiefship and residence in Jebu Ode are no longer involved?

Mr. M. MacDonald

The Governor of Nigeria reported in May of this year that he considered that it would be unwise to modify the existing Order banishing the ex-Awujale of Ijebu Ode from the Province of Ijebu and the parts of Nigeria adjacent thereto. I am not aware of any fresh circumstances which would alter the position.
