HC Deb 06 December 1944 vol 406 c555W
Mr. J. Dugdale

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if, in order to make it more representative, any plans are on foot for the revision of the Legislative Council of Nigeria.

Mr. Sorensen

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies, in view of the prospective new Gold Coast constitution with an unofficial majority on its Legislative Council, whether it is also proposed to reconstitute the Nigerian Legislative Council with a view to securing wider representation of Nigerian inhabitants.

Colonel Stanley

I am not at present in a position to make a statement with regard to constitutional development in Nigeria.
