HC Deb 14 May 1957 vol 570 c18W
Captain Kerby

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations if he will give the reasons communicated to him by the Government of Ghana for its request not to be included in any United Kingdom Honours Lists.

Mr. Alport

The Ghana Government have indicated that they do not intend to make recommendations to The Queen for the grant of honours to Ghana citizens but that they wish United Kingdom citizens in their service to continue to be eligible for such awards. Where recommendations are made by Commonwealth Governments overseas and approved by the Queen the awards are included not in the United Kingdom Honours List but in separate lists.
