§ Mr. J. Johnson
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what was the report of the consultant who visited Nigeria to examine the Onitsha sack factory project of the Colonial Development Corporation; and whether the proposed scheme is to be carried out.
§ Mr. Lyttelton
The consultant referred to was engaged by the Colonial Development Corporation and made his report direct to them. I understand that the report, which has not been published, is now being studied by the Corporation in consultation with the Nigeria Cocoa and Cotton Marketing Boards and that no decision about the future of the project has yet been taken.
