HC Deb 12 June 1940 vol 361 c1275W
Mr. de Rothschild

asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he has considered the correspondence from Mr. G. H. Nutting, of Tanganyika, expressing certain grievances of both a personal and general nature; whether these grievances have been investigated; and how they have been dealt with?

Mr. George Hall

The answer to the first two parts of the Question is in the affirmative. As regards the third part, the Governor of Tanganyika was asked, in April of last year, to arrange for Mr. Nutting to be informed that the Secretary of State had satisfied himself that there was no foundation for his complaints and that he saw no reason to intervene in the matter. It has been decided, after full consideration, to take no action with regard to the complaints which Mr. Nutting has recently made regarding the sale of his mining property.
