Sir W. Smithers

asked the Prime Minister whether it will be part of the duties of Lord Swinton to ensure that the bauxite deposits in the Gold Coast are developed rapidly and used to the full for the war effort?

Mr. Harold Macmillan

I have been asked to reply. It will be part of the Minister's duties to ensure that all the resources of West Africa which can be used for the war effort are developed as rapidly as possible.
