§ 78. Mr. J. Hudson
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies why he cooperated in the project of Messrs. Lever Brothers to establish a brewery in West Africa; and if consideration was given to 109W the necessity for reducing the import of beer into West Africa.
Mr. Creech Jones
I understand that the brewery will produce a light lager beer. This is in demand in Nigeria, for present arrangements are inadequate. It is the view of the Government of Nigeria that such provision is desirable.
