HC Deb 15 December 1949 vol 470 c333W
149. Mr. Gallacher

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he has considered the terms of the resolution passed by the Mary Pit Branch of the National Union of Mineworkers in connection with the events at Enugu, Nigeria, a copy of which has been sent to him by the hon. Member for West Fife; and what action he proposes to take in consequence of it, particularly in relation to the arrest of the chief of police.

Mr. Creech Jones

I have seen the resolution. Since the disturbances are the subject of inquiry in Nigeria it is not proper for me to take action on it.
