HC Deb 13 July 1955 vol 543 c171W
33. Mr. R. Harris

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if the report by Mr. A. V. Thomas on fire-fighting services in Nigeria is to be published; and which of its recommendations are to be implemented.

Mr. Hopkinson

The report has now been published, and a copy has been placed in the Library of the House. The Federal Government have accepted its recommendations in principle and are now examining ways of implementing the proposals regarding Lagos. The Regional Governments are considering what action they will take on the report.
