§ Mr. Prescott
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how many native ex-soldiers of the Gold Coast and Nigerian Regiments, respectively, are in receipt of disability pensions arising from the late war; what is the total sum involved; and what were the comparable figures for December 1945.
Mr. Creech Jones
I regret that the information required is not available in London. I am arranging for it to be obtained from the authorities in West Africa and will communicate with the hon. Member as soon as it is received.
