HC Deb 17 March 1947 vol 435 c34W
Mr. Dodds-Parker

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies in what Colonies has the head of the Labour Department been appointed to membership of the Legislative Council within the last 18 months.

Mr. Creech Jones

Since 17th April last, when my predecessor replied to a Question on this subject by the hon. and gallant Member for Altrincham (Mr. Erroll), the Labour Commissioner has been appointed a member of the Legislative Council in Nigeria and in Kenya and the Governors of all the larger Dependencies where similar action has not already been taken have been asked to consider that possibility.
