HC Deb 04 December 1956 vol 561 c114W
Mr. J. Johnson

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he will advise the Government of Mauritius to amend the membership of the Tobacco Board of that Colony to include representatives of the small tobacco planters.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

The five unofficial members of the Board are appointed annually by the Governor; in making the appointments he will, I am sure, continue to consider on each occasion what changes, if any, are desirable to ensure the most effective development of the industry.
