HC Deb 25 April 1956 vol 551 cc147-8W
71. Mr. N. Pannell

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what assistance from Colonial Development Welfare Funds is being granted to the Northern Region of Nigeria for the improvement of roads and communications.

Mr. Hare

I am awaiting the Governor's detailed application for a substantial grant for work on those roads which are the responsibility of the Northern Regional Government. Main trunk roads throughout Nigeria and other communications are primarily matters for the Federal Government.
