HC Deb 01 August 1951 vol 491 cc196-7W
Mr. Harold Davies

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what approach he has made to the Cocoa Planters Association of Western Samoa with a view to the use of their seedlings in West Africa; and what evidence he has that Western Samoan seedlings resist canker and bud rot.

Mr. J. Griffiths

I have made no such approach. I have no evidence whether Western Samoan cocoa seedlings are resistant to this disease.
