HC Deb 16 December 1949 vol 470 c340W
Mr. Lennox-Boyd

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how many native-language newspapers or papers in English, intended to be read by Africans, are published in Nigeria.

Mr. Creech Jones

My information is that there are 30 newspapers, either daily, weekly, fortnightly or monthly, printed in English, one in Hausa, and four in Yoruba.
