HC Deb 17 October 1945 vol 414 c1191W
Mr. Callaghan

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the system of forced labour for private enterprise in Africa will be abandoned now that the war is over.

Mr. George Hall

I am already in consultation with the Governors concerned on this question, and I am not yet in a position to make a statement. I may say that the Governors concerned and I are anxious to bring the system of forced labour to an end with as little delay as possible.
