HC Deb 04 February 1958 vol 581 cc157-8W
Mr. Brockway

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies on what grounds Mrs. Ransome-Kuti, President of the Nigerian National Women's Union, has been refused a passport to visit China.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

Mrs. RansomeKuti did not apply for a passport to visit China. She applied for a renewal of her passport, giving reasons of health inconsistent with the information about her plans available to the Government of the Federation of Nigeria. The decision to refuse her application was taken by the Governor-General on the recommendation of the Prime Minister of the Federation.
