HC Deb 05 March 1947 vol 434 c59W
17. Sir G. Fox

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he is satisfied that everything is being done to stamp out black-marketing activities in East Africa; and if he will consider calling in East African currency notes of the value of 100s. and over.

Mr. Creech Jones

The answer to the first part of the Question is "Yes, Sir." As regards the second part of the Question, the matter is primarily one for the Governments concerned, who have not hitherto found it desirable to recommend action on the lines indicated.
